Gift Planning is more than wills and trusts. Please review the options below commonly used to fund a gift and give us a call where we can help.



Some of the most common ways to make a gift to InterVarsity are to write a check, make an electronic funds transfer, give by credit card, or donate online.

Stocks & Bonds

Giving appreciated stock is one of the most tax advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting InterVarsity.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets may shield your heirs from taxes while funding InterVarsity's future.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a valuable option for making a charitable gift. It can be made without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.

Real Estate

A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages and make a significant charitable gift to InterVarsity.

Personal Property

A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property may be an excellent way to support InterVarsity.

Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund can provide you with immediate tax benefits while making your charitable giving easier for years to come. Might a donor-advised fund be right for you? Here’s how it works.
