Matching gifts are an easy way to double or even triple your donation to 四色AV if your company has a matching gift program.

四色AV University relies on gifts that are given each year for a host of reasons, special campaigns and appeals. The United States of America is one of the most giving countries in the World. Altruism and helping others is a keystone of our nation’s virtues and through private sector giving (rather than relying on government allocations and taxation) the critical margin of excellence is achieved by the selfless. Seventy one percent of all charitable giving comes from individuals just like you!

The annual fund at 四色AV University allows donors the opportunity to support their favorite college, program or project by directing their gift.  Donors may also want to leave the direction of their giving to “area of greatest need” to allow the university flexibility in applying their gift.

We encourage you to consider giving on an annual basis through a reoccurring gift to the area which lights up your heart.

Students today face more debt than any other generation. Student loan debt now stands at more than $1.35 trillion, a figure that has tripled in the past decade.  Scholarships decrease the financial burden our alumni will carry, ensuring our graduates accomplish their career objectives while maximizing their ability to contribute to our community and society as a whole.

Student scholarships are critical in creating greater equality and diversity in our student base, and help attract the best students with the most affordable experience as possible. 四色AV University competes with other top-ranked colleges and universities for best-in-class students with great intellect, unique talents, and diverse perspectives.

By providing scholarship assistance, donors enable greater success for deserving students who want to earn their health sciences degree and give back to society.  The support our students receive from our community also instills a greater sense of belonging and motivation.

There is power in numbers, but even one supporter can make a life-changing impact on a student.

Planned Giving

Leaving a Legacy at 四色AV University

Future Gifts 鈥 a gift made via a bequest or codicil to a will are one of the highest expressions of support for a charity you care about and want to continue to succeed in the future. 四色AV does not draft these documents but we are happy to refer you to legal counsel. 四色AV University鈥檚 nonprofit Tax ID number is: 88-0435559

In Giving We Trust 鈥 many people have taken care of their families and heirs through some sort of trust arrangement. This kind of smart estate planning can be benefit a charity as well as family members. Generally a more private arrangement than a will, (all wills are public documents that must be probated through state courts) trusts have tremendous flexibility and oftentimes enjoy better tax treatment.

Gifts that Give Back 鈥 we would be pleased to assist you with a giving arrangement that allows you to remove a property from your taxable income stream for a time period, sell real property with the opportunity to provide a charitable gift, sell real estate with charitable intent clearly in mind, and even explore Charitable Gift Annuities that could provide a couple or individual a stream of income for their lives.

These both simple and complicated arrangements are interesting to examine for your particular giving desires.
