Making a gift of appreciated securities can be a great tax-efficient method of supporting SC&I. Donating such stock to SC&I can help you reduce or eliminate capital gains tax. Notify us of your plan to donate stock to SC&I using this form.

Matching Gifts
Many companies and foundations sponsor matching gift programs for their employees’ philanthropic interests. These companies may be willing to double or even triple the value of charitable gifts made by employees or their spouses. In these instances, you will be recognized for the full amount of your gift plus any employer match.

Contact your company’s human resource department to find out if it has a matching gift program or use our online search to see if your company will match your gift.

Wire Transfer
To wire transfer funds to Rutgers, contact Assistant Dean for Development Rob Eccles for instructions.

Deferred or Planned Gifts
Charitable gifts help you meet your current philanthropic goals and extend your generosity well into the future. But did you know that a planned gift can also protect your assets, provide for your family, and guarantee you income for life? You can even make a significant impact through a gift that costs nothing in your lifetime. Learn more below, or reach out to Assistant Dean for Development Rob Eccles.
