Recurring Gifts

A recurring gift is a convenient and affordable way to make an impact. Set up your gift for three or more consecutive fiscal years to become a member of the Loyal Giving Society.

Make a Multiyear Pledge

A multiyear pledge is a convenient way to make a more substantial gift through a series of smaller gifts over a designated time period. The office of College Advancement will be happy to assist you with setting up a multiyear pledge.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Corporate Matching Gifts are gifts made by your employer to match your personal gift to the College. A dollar-for-dollar match is common, but some companies contribute two or even three dollars for each dollar an employee gives. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Check to see if your company matches.

Give Stock

Donating appreciated stock is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to Lycoming College. Gifting stock to a charitable organization allows you to maximize your giving by avoiding the capital gains tax of selling appreciated stock. In addition, your gift qualifies for a charitable income tax deduction at the fair market value of the stock, if you itemize your deductions. Learn more.

Give from your Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

A donor-advised fund (DAF) acts like a philanthropic savings account. It is a type of giving program that allows you to combine tax benefits with the flexibility to recommend the amount and the frequency of gifts to Lycoming College or other charities you support.

Give from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

If you are 70 ½ years old or greater, you can make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) to Lycoming College directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). QCDs are a tax-free gift to your favorite charity and are not realized as income for you. Once you are 72 years old, QCDs can count as all or a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). Learn more.

Make a Planned Gift

Planned gifts offer some of our most thoughtful donors a strategic way to care for their families and Lycoming. Supporting Lycoming with a planned gift can cost you nothing today or can even provide income for you or your loved ones.

Planned giving can help you realize significant tax savings in your financial and estate planning by making a gift or bequest to Lycoming. Learn more about the features and benefits of planned giving.

Lycoming College Employee Payroll Deduction

Lycoming College employees have the ability to make a gift to the College through payroll deduction. Payroll deduction is a convenient way to support the area(s) most important to you. Employee donations also count toward percent participation, which ultimately aids the College’s ability to qualify for grant funding.

If you currently give through payroll deduction and would like to increase your gift or change the designation, please complete and submit a new form. Changes will become effective with the next payroll cycle.

Memorial Contributions

Memorial contributions provide a meaningful way to honor the legacy of alumni and friends of Lycoming College. Contributions can be made to support a wide range of priorities and needs from annual gifts, naming opportunities, and endowed scholarships. We would be pleased to discuss the ways in which Lycoming College might share in honoring the lives of those who have passed away. Please contact College Advancement at (570) 321-4036 or
