Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities may offer better tax benefits than a gift of cash. If you are interested in making a gift of stock, please contact Regina Block at 815-740-5065 or by mail at:

Matching Gifts

Imagine doubling or even tripling your gift to the University of St. Francis by simply taking a walk down to the Human Resources office at your work. Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations – sometimes matching 100 percent or two or three times the value of your contribution.

Let us know if your company provides matching funds when you make your gift to USF. In many cases, we can take care of the rest. If you have questions about matching gifts or would like to set up a matching program at your company, please contact Regina Block at 815-740-5065 or rblock@stfrancis.edu

 

Real Estate Gifts

University of St. Francis accepts contributions of almost any kind of real estate, including undeveloped land, farms, commercial buildings, vacation homes or residences. The tax benefits can be even more significant than for cash gifts. To learn more about donations of real estate please contact Regina Block at 815-740-5065 or rblock@stfrancis.edu.
