Types of Gifts
Cash is the most widely used form of giving. A cash gift can be designated to any one of our funds, e.g. Scholarship Fund, Capital Campaign, Endowment Fund, etc. Cash gifts can be designated for both unrestricted and restricted purposes.
Gifts of Securities
Giving securities may be a tax-wise way to help UBC students. Federal tax laws allow a charitable deduction for fair market value of securities based on the date of the gift. Gifts of securities can be designated for both unrestricted and restricted purposes. Begin the process by completing a Power of Securities transfer form.
Gifts of Real Estate
Gifts of real estate include land and generally whatever is affixed to land, as well as those rights that issue out of land. A gift of real property may be accepted upon consent of the President, the Director of Development, and Board of Directors. Real estate gifts can be designated for both unrestricted and restricted purposes.
Gifts in Kind
Gifts-in-kind are real property gifts, including works of art, collections, equipment, books, and other tangible personal property. Gifts-in-kind can be accepted if for purpose of value and/or can be used to fulfill the mission of UBC. Partners wishing to make gifts-in-kind may be asked to provide a qualified appraisal to establish value.
Life Insurance Gifts
Gifts of life insurance can enable partners to maximize their giving and, perhaps, make a larger gift than they ever thought possible. Gifts of life insurance can be made in one of two ways. First, a partner can name Union Bible College as primary or secondary beneficiary on their policy (appropriate change of beneficiary forms can be obtained from the donor’s insurance company). Second, a partner can make Union Bible College both owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy on the donor’s life. Life insurance gifts can be designated for both unrestricted and restricted purposes. Partners interested in making this type of gift should contact the Office of Development.
Memorial gifts are those gifts in memory of a loved one. Union Bible College is delighted to honor, via memorial gifts, your cherished loved ones who have demonstrated a Christian walk that is consistent with the Scriptures. Memorial gifts can be designated for both unrestricted and restricted purposes.
Deferred or Life Estate Gifts
Deferred or life estate gifts are gifts that are considered future gifts to Union Bible College. They may be in the form of life insurance, a will, a trust, or an annuity. These types of gifts are a wonderful and lasting testimony of our partner’s wish to continue his/her stewardship interests after death. Contact the Office of Development.
Thousands of companies are willing to match their employees’, and sometimes their retirees’, gifts. This is a tremendous way to maximize your stewardship. To find out if your company matches employee gifts, please check with your Human Resource Department. A complete listing is found at the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).
