Pledges allow you to schedule your support of Multnomah over an extended period, up to four years. If you would like to make a pledge or update a recurring gift, please contact Advancement at (503) 251-6461.

A gift of appreciated securities produces two tax benefits: such gifts are deductible at full market value and avoid capital gains tax. For instructions on how to transfer securities, please contact Advancement at (503) 251-6461.

For donors who are 70 ½ years or older, a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your IRA allows you to make a tax-advantaged distribution for up to $100,000 using your required minimum distribution (RMD). We recommend working closely with an IRA custodian to request a direct distribution to Multnomah University.

You can also use this free online tool to learn more and get started on your IRA gift.

Your gift of highly appreciated real estate to Multnomah, allows you to avoid or reduce your capital gains tax, likely creates a substantial income tax deduction, and allows you to maximize your support of the university.

Gift Planning / Legacy Giving

You may make a bequest or estate gift by including a provision in your will or living trust, or by naming Multnomah University as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. The university’s portion can be expressed as a dollar amount or as a percentage of the assets to be given.

You can get started quickly and easily using this online tool to write your legal will and create your gift, at no cost today.

A charitable lead trust makes an annual payment to Multnomah University for a period of years, and at the end of the term, the remaining assets go to your children or other beneficiary.

A gift from your donor advised fund allows you to support Multnomah University as part of your larger philanthropic strategy.

A life estate allows you to gift a residence, vacation home, or farm to Multnomah while retaining the right of usage of the property for life or a term of years. The donor receives a current income tax deduction for the gift that can be used to reduce one’s current taxable income.

A gift of an existing life insurance policy may enable you to turn a moderate monthly premium or unused policy into a major gift or a life income gift plan.

A life income gift allows you to give assets to Multnomah University while providing yourself or others with income for a period of time before Multnomah University is permitted to use your gift. There are several kinds of life income gifts available at Multnomah University: Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Unitrusts and Charitable Remainder Annuity Trusts.
