Ways You Can Give
Gifts can be in the form of cash, stock transfer (no capital gains), real estate, insurance policies, and/or many types of deferred giving. Many companies match charitable gifts. To find out if your company has a matching funds program, click here. Also, ask your company or foundation to support the CoB.
Annual gifts are how most alumni begin making their pledges upon graduation. These gifts usually range from $1 - $5,000 and alumni increase the size of their annul gift over time. Typically, alumni at other universities make annual gifts throughout their lifetime. These gifts can be made to the College of Business as a whole or to a specific department.
Planned Gifts include wills, annuities, trusts and estate planning. Notify David Grimm if you have included JMU in your will, and you will become a member of Madison Founders' Society.
Endowed Gifts are critical because they are a perpetual gift to your alma mater. The donor is able to both name the gift (usually for their family, a professor or someone else important to them they wish to honor or memorialize) and direct its use for faculty support or student scholarship. The minimum amount to establish an endowment is $10,000 for 5 years.
While the donor may add to their fund in future years as prosperity allows, once the fund is established it becomes available for others to contribute to as well. Anyone may contribute any amount to an established endowment. Giving to the principal of an endowment raises the total endowment of JMU.
