Matching Gifts

Complete a matching gift form from your human resources office and send it in with your gift. We will take care of the rest. For more information on matching gifts, contact Rhonda McMillan, Gift Records Coordinator, at 910.630.7170, toll free at 800.488.7110 extension 7170, or via e-mail at rmcmillan@methodist.edu.


Estate and Other Planned Gifts

By including Methodist University in your will or making other planned gifts, you can provide for yourself and your loved ones, plan wisely for your future and make a meaningful gift to Methodist. Planned gifts enable you to preserve your assets during your lifetime and leave a valuable legacy at Methodist. Donors who make estate and other planned gifts are recognized as members of the Endowment Society, the university’s planned giving society.

For more information, please visit mugiftplanning.org or contact Sandy Ammons, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, at 910.630.7200, toll-free at 800.488.7110 extension 7200, or via e-mail at sammons@methodist.edu.


Gifts of Stocks, Bonds or other Securities

Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds or other securities allow you to make a substantial gift to Methodist at minimal cost. You will receive a tax deduction based on the value of the security on the date of the gift. With long-term appreciated securities (those held longer than 12 months), you will receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair-market value of your gift and avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation.

If you wish to donate securities to Methodist, please contact Rhonda McMillan, Gift Records Coordinator, at 910.630.7170, toll free at 800.488.7110 extension 7170, or via e-mail at rmcmillan@methodist.edu.


Gifts of Real Estate

Gifts of real estate are an excellent way to make a difference in the lives of Methodist students and lower your tax liability at the same time. Gifts of property or a percentage of property may help you avoid paying capital gains tax, lower your current income tax and reduce your future federal estate taxes. Real estate gifts may increase your income if they are structured through a life income gift. Gifts of real estate must meet certain criteria and be approved by Methodist University.

If you wish to donate real estate to Methodist, please contact Sandy Ammons, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, at 910.630.7609, toll-free at 800.488.7110 extension 7609, or via e-mail at sammons@methodist.edu.


Payroll Deduction

Methodist employees can also make their gifts to the university through payroll deduction. Contact Rhonda McMillan, Gift Records Coordinator, at 910.630.7170 or via e-mail at rmcmillan@methodist.edu for assistance.


Recognizing Donors

Methodist University has a variety of giving clubs and societies that recognize donors for their annual, planned and cumulative gifts to the university. Based upon the size of your gift, there are also many wonderful naming opportunities available that are outlined in the individual campaign brochures.
