Securities
Your gift of securities may be given to Tufts Hillel as an outright gift or to fulfill a pledge.

Appreciated securities can make an excellent gift.  Donors who give securities that have been held long term may realize two benefits: a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, and, at the same time, avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciated assets.

Please note: The securities must be given directly to Tufts Hillel at Tufts University; if you sell the securities and donate the proceeds, you will not realize these same tax benefits.

To arrange a gift of securities please contact Tufts Treasury Operations at 617-627-3171 or email: vicky.wei@tufts.edu

Corporate Matching Gifts
As a benefit to you, your employer may match your charitable giving. Matching gifts can often double or triple the value of your gift.  Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and /or their spouses.

To take advantage of your company’s matching gift program, simply complete a matching gift form and send it to Tufts Hillel along with or after your gift.

Dedicated Gifts
If you'd like to give a gift in honor or in memory of a friend or family member, we are happy to send a card on your behalf that reflects the occasion. 

Your thoughtfulness supports Tufts Hillel as we provide meaningful Jewish experiences that enrich the lives of Tufts students and strengthen the Jewish community far beyond campus.
Please be sure to let us know who the gift is in honor or memory of, as well as the name and address where the card should be sent. 

Legacy Gifts
By including Tufts Hillel in your estate planning, you can extend your legacy to future generations of Tufts students and ensure that they will have the benefit of a strong and vibrant Jewish community on campus.  

Bequests
A bequest in your will or trust is the simplest way to make a significant gift to Tufts Hillel without affecting your assets during your lifetime.  It can be done as easily as naming Tufts Hillel as a beneficiary for an IRA, life insurance policy, or in your will. 

Additionally, you can give specific assets including securities, real estate (such as a residence or office building), or tangible personal property (such as artwork, antiques, royalties, or copyrights).

Please consider designating a specific sum from your estate (e.g., $50,000) or a percentage of your estate (e.g., 5 percent).

Other Planned Giving
Other types of planning giving may be beneficial to you during your lifetime. These include various forms of trusts and annuities funded by cash and securities.
