By making a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares, you can support Albertus and potentially become eligible for an income tax deduction. Gifts of Securities is a popular way of supporting Albertus. By donating securities that have increased in value, you may be eligible for a tax deduction at full value (if owned for longer than one year) and also avoid paying capital gains tax. (Please contact your tax professional for details.)

Many donors chose to give their gifts in honor or in memory of important persons or events in their lives. If you would like to designate your gift in honor or in memory, please make a note when making your donation.

Many companies give generously to the non-profit institutions that their employees support. By matching employee gifts, businesses are assured that their charitable resources are supporting causes that are important to their employees and their communities. If you, or your spouse, work for a participating company, you can double or triple your gift to Albertus. All you need to do is contact your (or your spouse's) human resources department to obtain instructions for requesting matching gifts.

This is a gift made to Albertus in your will by designating the College as a beneficiary of a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. These gifts are for the future use of the College, so your bequest benefits Albertus most if it is designated for the College's general use. If you wish to designate your gift for a specific purpose, such as a scholarship fund in memory of a loved one, please note that new endowment funds require a minimum of $50,000 to be established.

How does it work?

  • You include a charitable bequest in your will.
  • Your will directs assets to your loved ones as well as a bequest to Albertus, respectful of your specifications.
