Pledges enable a donor to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and tax-wise. A pledge may enable a donor to consider a more significant gift than would have otherwise been possible. Terms for payment on pledges are flexible and at the option of the donor.
Once established, an endowed fund is a dependable and perpetual source of support since the principal is invested and only a portion of the earnings is spent annually. A minimum gift of $50,000 is needed to establish an unrestricted endowment, while $100,000 is needed for a restricted endowment.
In certain instances, it may be preferable from an estate, financial or tax-planning perspective to consider long-term gift planning as the best way to make a gift. This can be accomplished through various gift instruments, such as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, and wills and bequests.
If Ohio State is already included in your estate plans, you can declare your intentions to us by filling out this online form. A member of the Advancement team will be in contact with you shortly to discuss the many ways your commitment can create a lasting impact on campus.
Alternatives to monetary gifts such as equipment or books are always appreciated. At Fisher, many donors choose to support the college’s outreach and engagement efforts by hosting events with college leaders, current students, alumni and friends.
A donor advised fund is a charitable giving vehicle established at a public charity. It allows an individual to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit and recommend grants to eligible charities over time. The Ohio State University Foundation Donor Advised Fund, in partnership with The Columbus Foundation, was created to offer our alumni and friends a simplified approach to creating their Ohio State legacy.
Securities may be made as outright gifts or as a payment on a pledge. Stock certificates may be reassigned directly to The Ohio State University Foundation or may be transferred through the donor's broker. The mean market value on the date of the transfer will determine the value of the gift for tax purposes. Gifts of appreciated securities may be tax deductible (up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income). The deduction is based on the full fair market value, and capital gains tax is not due when the stock is transferred to the university.
How and where you choose to make your philanthropic impact is a very personal decision. Contact a team member in theOffice of Advancementto explore giving opportunities that match your interests and passions at Fisher.
