Financial Support Options

Give a gift

There are several ways to help us achieve our goals.

  • Planned gifts are commitments you make to the university that will benefit Political Science at some future date. Planned gifts may include a provision in your will or trust, a charitable remainder trust, a charitable gift annuity, or life insurance.
  • Gifts of cash, stock or other securities. Securities may be transferred as gifts to Political Science using various methods.
  • Gifts-in-kind that fulfill Political Science objectives can be accepted and may include works of art, royalties, property, real estate, and equipment.
  • On-line gifts can be made to Political Science, or to programs that you wish to designate. You can make a gift online through our secure website using your credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express), your debit card, or directly from your checking account.

Corporate matching gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that match all or a portion of a charitable contribution made by their employees. If your company provides a matching gift, request a matching gift form from your employer, complete, sign and return it with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to this organization may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please visit the IU Alumni Association website.
