Ways to Give to Hunter College
How Alumni, Parents and Friends Can Support Hunter
Make an Immediate Impact
Cash Gifts can be made easily by credit card, personal check, cashier's check or money order payable to The Hunter College Foundation. Donate today, using our online form or mail-in envelope.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities, Stocks or Bonds provide considerable tax advantages for the donor when the assets are transferred to Hunter before they are sold.
Recurring Gifts are a convenient way to sustain your support for Hunter. You can arrange for your credit card to be charged a particular amount at a chosen frequency.
Matching Gifts from your employer can multiply your contribution. Ask your employer if it has a matching-gift program.
Ensure the Future Growth and Effect of Your Gift
Gift Pledges are formal statements of intent to make a donation. You may satisfy your pledge by making periodic payments, and use each payment to qualify for an income-tax deduction.
Endowment Gifts -- Endowment fund gifts are invested by the Foundation to generate income in the future, providing you an opportunity to make a lasting impact. Pursuant to the New York Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act ("NYPMIFA"), the Foundation will spend an amount from the endowment fund each year as the Board of Trustees deems prudent after considering the factors governing endowment appropriation decisions set forth in NYPMIFA. Endowment funds can be established with a minimum contribution of $100,000. They can be unrestricted or directed toward scholarships, professorships or other special programs.
