Gifts of Endowment

An endowed gift provides ENMU with income every year in perpetuity. With a minimum contribution of $5,000 you may establish an endowment in the name of your choice, allowing the interest to be used annually.

Gifts of Security

An outright gift of appreciated stock eliminates any capital gains tax. This type of gift allows you to claim an income-tax deduction based on the full market value of long-term securities, regardless of their original cost.

Matching Gifts

A gift matched by an employer, which can increase your gift amount. Contact your personnel office to determine if your company has a matching gift program. If so, you may be able to add significantly to the value of your own contribution.

Memorials and Tributes

A gift to the University in honor of another. When someone special in your life marks a time of passage, a gift is a fitting way to honor the occasion and express your sentiments. We will notify the honoree or appropriate family member at your request.

Gifts of Real Estate

A gift of a home, vacation home, farm, ranch or any other dwelling, commercial property or undeveloped land.

Gifts in Kind (Tangible Gifts)

Antiques, paintings, jewelry, equipment and other items of worth.
