The Clemson Libraries also have a number of alternative giving programs that may be suited to your needs. You will find a summary of the other giving options below. Please contact Donna Dant, Director of Development, if you are interested in any of these choices.
- Online Giving
- If you are ready to make a contribution to the Clemson Libraries today, you can use our online giving site. By following this link, you can make a credit card donation using our secure server.
- Direct Gift
- A direct gift can be made by check or credit card payable to the Clemson Fund. In the memo or designation line select Libraries or see the specific account to enter here. To charge your gift to your credit card by phone, call (864) 656-5896.
- Gifts in Kind
- Gifts of books, recordings, DVDs, maps, manuscripts or other gifts in kind that will enhance the Libraries’ collections and support the research needs of Clemson students and faculty are most welcome. More information on making gifts in kind.
- The full market value of gifts of appreciated securities is tax deductible. In most cases, appreciation in the value of the security benefits the Clemson Libraries and is not taxable to the donor.
- Matching Gifts
- Many employers will match employees’ gifts to the Clemson Libraries. To make a gift, send a gift designated to the Clemson Libraries (payable to the Clemson Fund) accompanied by a matching gift form obtained from your employer’s personnel or employee relations office.
- Real Estate
- Real property, either in its entirety or in part, can be deeded to benefit the Clemson Libraries. It is possible to arrange a sizeable tax deduction by deeding a home to the Clemson Libraries, while continuing to occupy the property for life.
- Charitable Gift Annuity
- Donors may transfer money, securities, or real estate in trust to the Clemson Libraries.
- Qualified Retirement Plans
- Naming the Clemson Libraries as a beneficiary of your qualified retirement plan—IRA, 401(k), 403(b), or KEOGH—may be particularly advantageous. This type of estate gift, unlike others, will result in more assets being passed on to your heirs.
- By writing a will or living trust, you can specify that you would like your estate to benefit the Clemson Libraries. Planned gifts include gifts through wills, living trust, charitable trusts, charitable gift annuities, retirement plans, or other estate planning arrangements.
