Many types of assets may be used to provide gifts to support WSU Global Campus. A variety of methods of giving allows donors to choose the most appropriate asset for their circumstances and interests.

Gifts of Stock. Gifts of marketable stocks or mutual fund shares can benefit WSU while creating a favorable income tax deduction for you.

Real Estate. The WSU Foundation may accept gifts of real estate, including houses, condominiums, commercial properties, farm land, rental property, or undeveloped land.

Life Insurance. By naming the WSU Foundation as a beneficiary of an insurance policy, you can amplify the relatively small annual premium costs for the policy to provide a transformational gift to benefit WSU Global Campus students and programs.

In-Kind Gifts. In-kind gifts are contributions of goods or services of value to the University, such as book collections, artwork, equipment, etc. Known as “gifts in kind,” these non-monetary donations constitute another important avenue of support.

To learn more about any of these non-cash gift options, please contact Asst. Vice Chancellor for Strategic Partnerships Kelly Newell at or by phone at 509-335-4247.

Many employers will match their employees’ donations to Washington State University. Some employers will even match the gifts of retired employees, spouses, parents, and even contributions from their board of directors. All matched funds will be designated to the area to which you originally contributed your gift.

Bequests created through a Will or Living Trust are one of the easiest ways for you to support WSU Global Campus in the future. After providing for family and other loved ones, you may include a gift to the WSU Foundation in your estate plan to continue your annual gift in perpetuity or to make a special gift not possible during your lifetime.

If you have provided for the WSU Foundation in your estate plans but have not notified us of your intentions, please contact Asst. Vice Chancellor for Strategic Partnerships Kelly Newell at or by phone at 509-335-4247. Sharing your plans with us allows us to express our gratitude to you during your lifetime, ensures that your wishes will be met as you intended, and will help the University’s long-term planning efforts.

Turn Your Generosity Into Lifetime Income: Charitable Gift Annuities

When you are looking for ways to help Washington State University with our mission, you shouldn’t feel like you are choosing between your philanthropic goals and financial security. One gift that allows you to support WSU’s work while receiving fixed payments for life is a charitable gift annuity.

Not only does this gift provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work, but when you create a charitable gift annuity with WSU you can receive a variety of tax benefits depending on how you fund your gift.

If you fund your gift annuity with cash or appreciated property, you qualify for a federal income tax deduction if you itemize. In addition, you can minimize capital gains taxes when you fund your gift with appreciated property.

And now, you can fund your gift using your IRA assets. If you are 70½ and older, you can make a one-time election of up to $50,000 to fund a gift annuity. While your gift does not qualify for an income tax deduction, it does escape income tax liability on the transfer and count toward all or part of your required minimum distributions.

Delay Your Payments

If you are younger than 60 or don’t need your payments immediately, you can set up a deferred gift annuity. This allows you to delay receiving payments until a later date—such as when you reach retirement. To learn more, view and download the FREE guide Deferred Gift Annuities: Plan Now, Benefit Later.

Endowments are a particularly powerful investment in WSU Global Campus’ future because they deliver a dependable, perpetual source of funding. The WSU Foundation Endowment is composed of nearly 2,000 restricted funds established by donors for specific purposes, such as named scholarships or professorships. Endowed funds are unique in that the gift is invested. Each year, a percentage of the endowment’s 36-month rolling average is distributed to benefit the University. The rest is re-invested to ensure growth, maintaining the fund’s spending power far into the future. In this respect, an endowment is intended to be a perpetual gift.

For more information about creating an endowment, contact Asst. Vice Chancellor for Strategic Partnerships Kelly Newell at or by phone at 509-335-4247. Once you decide to create an endowment, a development professional will work closely with you to help define the features of your endowment to meet both your wishes and the needs of the University.
