Types of Gifts
Donors may elect the type of payment and the timeframe for making their donation that best suits their circumstances. The options include:
Gifts of Cash
There is no easier way to garner a charitable deduction than by making a gift of cash. Gifts of cash include check, credit card, appreciated securities, and/or real or personal property to be converted following a prescribed period. If you itemize, your gifts of cash are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes up to 50% of your adjusted gross income.
Gifts of Real Estate
Gifts of real estate in the Manitowoc County area, such as a residence. May be considered by Silver Lake College of the Holy Family for full tax advantage to the donor.
Gifts-In-Kind are donations other than cash that can be used as is by the College, such as (but not limited to): books, texts, office and art supplies, computer hardware, computer software, equipment, furniture, and musical instruments.
Pledges may be paid in intervals over a period of time designated by and at the convenience of the donor.
Donors may contribute to the College while maximizing their own financial program through planned contributions, such as will bequests, income trusts, annuities, and life insurance. Silver Lake College of the Holy Family Advancement Personnel will be pleased to assist you in making a gift that is appropriate to your circumstances and in accordance with your wishes. The Advancement Office will follow through with a written reminder.
