A gift of securities is an easy way to support the College—and it can result in special tax savings for you. If you're considering making a gift of securities to the College, we encourage you to consult with your financial advisor and with Elmhurst’s Office of Development.
When you include the College in your estate plans through a bequest, annuity, trust, retirement plan or another form, you leave a meaningful legacy for generations to come. Some forms of planned gifts even provide income for yourself or for a loved one.
A gift of property can minimize your tax burden. If you’re considering a gift of property, please contact the Office of Development.
The College benefits significantly from in-kind gifts such as office equipment, sports equipment, and professional services such as printing or consulting. If you or your business can make such a gift, please contact the Office of Development.
Many employers will match charitable contributions made by their employees or even retirees. To find out if your company participates, search our Matching Gifts page.
Honorary or Memorial Gifts
Giving to Elmhurst in honor or memory of someone special to you is a wonderful way to pay tribute. You may pay tribute by dedicating a campus bench, paver brick or tree; or by supporting a specific giving opportunity such as the Elmhurst College Fund or a Light of Knowledge Scholarship Fund.
