Employer Matching Gifts

Many companies participate in gift matching programs; some will even match gifts made by retirees and spouses of employees. Check with your employer to find out if they participate in a matching gifts program.

Electronic Funds Transfer

You can give a monthly gift directly from your bank account. To initiate this process please contact Candis Arthur, or you can complete the EFT Registration.

Corporate and Foundation Gifts

Staff will work to match your organization’s philanthropic interests with Berea College needs. Learn more about corporate and foundation giving.

Planned Giving

With thoughtful planning you can provide long-lasting support and impact the lives of students. Discover the tax-saving benefits of an annuity or trust which provide income for life, or establish your legacy by adding Berea to your estate plans. Explore planned giving options.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund gives you the flexibility to determine how much and how often a gift is made to Berea College with a tax advantage. It is an excellent way to amplify your charitable giving and achieve your philanthropic goals

IRA Rollover

You may be able to take your required minimum distribution (RMD) from your IRA for the tax year with an IRA charitable distribution or “rollover.”

Funds can be transferred directly to Berea College by your IRA plan manager without increasing your taxable income.

Stocks and Securities

These gifts may be tax-deductible at fair market value on the date that the College officially records the securities in its name.
