Giving can take many forms outside of writing a check or charging a credit card via our giving form. Hastings College also encourages gifts in the form of appreciated stock, assets, IRA Rollovers or Donor Advised Funds (DAFs), to name a few.

Your gifts to Hastings College helps us work through immediate challenges, as well as plan for a strong future. Contact our team at the Hastings College Foundation to schedule a consultation or learn more about our services. Together we can shape the future of education and create a brighter tomorrow for generations to come.

Through an IRA
Charitable giving through an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) offers a meaningful opportunity to make a difference while maximizing tax advantages. By leveraging an IRA charitable rollover, individuals aged 70½ or older can directly transfer funds from their IRA to  Hastings College. This strategy allows donors to fulfill their philanthropic goals by supporting the College’s mission while potentially reducing their taxable income. 

IRA charitable giving not only provides immediate benefits by supporting charitable initiatives, but it also offers a practical way to align personal values with financial planning, creating a lasting impact on Hastings College.

From Another Foundation or Fund
Transferring money from another foundation to the Hastings College Foundation is easy! First, make sure you’ve communicated your intent for this gift to the Foundation Office (contact information, below). Then provide our identification information to your established Foundation manager, we will contact you to confirm the gift has been received.

From a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
Charitable giving through a Donor Advised Fund presents a flexible and strategic approach to philanthropy. By establishing a Donor Advised Fund, you can receive an immediate tax deduction and make a charitable contribution to Hastings College. 

With a Donor Advised Fund, you can take the time to carefully consider your giving strategy, contribute appreciated assets and support the College’s initiatives over time. DAFs offer a centralized platform for managing charitable giving, allowing you to engage your family members in philanthropy and create a lasting legacy. By leveraging the benefits of a DAF, you can maximize the impact of their charitable contributions while enjoying the convenience and flexibility of ongoing giving.

Property and Assets
Charitable giving through property and assets offers a powerful avenue for making a significant impact while maximizing tax benefits. By donating appreciated assets, such as stocks, bonds or other investments or real estate properties, you can support Hastings College. This form of giving allows you to leverage your assets to create positive change while potentially avoiding capital gains taxes on the appreciated value. Additionally, you may be eligible for a charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the donated property or assets.

Charitable giving through property and assets not only provides an opportunity to align personal values with financial planning but also empowers individuals to make a lasting difference at Hastings College. 

Contact us with your plans, along with an assessment of value. Donated “non-cash” assets with values of $5,000.00 or more require an official appraisal completed by a certified appraiser.
