Many donors make outright gifts in the form of appreciated securities rather than cash in order to benefit from extra tax advantages. You avoid paying a tax on capital gains, which you would owe if you sold the securities. These gifts are also tax deductible. Download the form for more information.

Planned Gifts

The Pavonia Heritage Society is comprised of our esteemed alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends who support the University through planned gifts. Planned gifts can take the form of:

  • Wills and Living Trusts
  • Beneficiary Designations
  • IRA Charitable Rollover

Endowed Gifts

A gift to the endowment has both immediate and long-term benefits. The donated funds are invested and a portion of the annual income is used to address immediate needs at Saint Peter’s. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support. Endowed gifts are created using cash, tangible personal property, appreciated securities and real estate.

Gifts That Pay

Charitable Gift Annuities provide a dependable source of income, an annual tax deduction for those who itemize, and the opportunity to make a sizeable campaign gift.

Charitable Remainder Trusts provide you or other named individuals income for a period up to 20 years from assets you give the trust to create. Many donors choose this option because they can make a significant gift to the University and have potential for increased income and a partial charitable income tax deduction.
