Planned Gifts

Learn about Planned Giving. Did you know that you can increase your income, earn valuable income-tax deductions, and reduce your estate taxes – all while making a significant investment in MVNU? To learn about deferred or planned gifts, including bequests, life-income plans, and other options for your estate, please contact us at 1-800-367-9294, option 2 or email development@mvnu.edu.


Gifts of Personal Property

Also known as a gift-in-kind, gifts of personal property can be charitably gifted to MVNU. Gifts-in-kind such as books, equipment, real estate, and artwork may qualify for charitable gift credit. Gifts-in-kind are welcomed but appraisal of donated items is the donor’s responsibility. MVNU will provide a gift receipt. Click here to complete the Gifts of Personal Property & Real Estate form.


Real Estate

Gifts of appreciated real estate can have especially attractive tax benefits. Examples include homes, condominiums, commercial properties, farmland, and rental properties. Real estate does not have to be donated outright, but can be transferred to a charitable remainder trust to provide you with lifetime income. Click here to complete the Gifts of Personal Property & Real Estate form.


Securities

In addition to providing a significant gift, donating long-term appreciated securities enables you to avoid potential capital gain taxes and receive a charitable income tax deduction. For more information on the procedures for the transfer of such gifts to MVNU, please contact Steve Jenkins, Controller, at 740-397-9000, ext. 4417 or sjenkin2@mvnu.edu.
