Cash and Pledges
The simplest and most common type of gift is made through a one-time payment of cash, often by means of a personal check. Another popular option is a pledge, a gift made over period of time with regular payments. Pledges to the Xavier campaign can be made up to a maximum of five years duration.
Gifts of Securities
Many donors make a gift through the donation of assets such as stocks or bonds. A gift of securities may allow a donor to realize an immediate income tax deduction on the appreciated value of the donated securities. While these gifts can be made quickly and easily, please contact the Office of Institutional advancement to receive specific instructions on how to execute the gift.
The most common donations are outright gifts, such as cash, that we receive right away. But sometimes, donors want to hold on to their assets for now, to be sure they can meet their family's future needs. These people are usually delighted to learn that we have alternatives that allow them to still make gifts. Planned gifts are meaningful gifts that can cost you nothing now. A planned gift may be the right choice for you. (click here for planned giving webpage)
