Ways of Giving
Your choice to give is most important. When you make a gift to Kean University, your gift has an immediate impact—on our students, on our community and on the world. Making a gift today is an investment in our students and our faculty and ensures our vision of providing a world class education. Your support to Kean University will preserve our traditions of excellence for future generations of students.
Ways to Give
There are many ways to make your gift, ranging from online giving to including the university in your estate plans. Whichever method you choose, you may give an unrestricted gift to be used for an area of greatest need, or you may designate your support to a specific program.
Giving can take the following forms:
Gifts of cash
Include online giving by credit card, giving by mail, automatic deduc¬tions from your bank account and more.
Gifts of stock or securities
Gifts of securities publicly traded and closely held stock and real es¬tate, such as a residence or vacation home, entitle donors to significant charitable tax deductions.
An easy way to double or even triple your donation to Kean University is to determine if your employer has a matching gift program. Simply obtain a matching gift form from your employer, fill it out and send it to the Kean University Foundation office with your gift.
Make a difference for the future. By making a bequest to the University in your will, trust or estate plan, you can choose to make a gift that benefits Kean as well as your personal finances. Other types of planned gifts include naming the University as the beneficiary (or contingent beneficiary) on a life insurance policy, IRA or other retirement fund, such as 401(k); or through a charitable gift annuity, unitrust or life estate gift. No matter how you choose to give, our planned giving staff can help guide you through the process and help you fulfill your philanthropic needs.
Gifts of property
The university accepts gifts of real estate including personal residences, second homes, farms, commercial or income property and land that offer a wide variety of tax and other benefits. Gifts of real estate can provide an opportunity for charitable giving while reducing taxes.
