Ways to Give

Mail: You can also make your gift by mailing a check to Mary Baldwin University, using the address below. Please note — either in the memo section of your check or on an accompanying note or reply card — if you are supporting the Baldwin Fund, a specific campaign priority, or other designated use of your gift.
Call: The staff of the Office of University Advancement is ready to help you make your gift or to answer your questions about other ways to give.

Types of Gifts

  • Checks and credit card payments are accepted via the methods outlined above.
  • Appreciated securities can be transferred to the college and may be an excellent way to make your gift. If you have owned the securities for more than one year, you may claim a tax deduction equal to their current market value. Similarly, you may contribute bond shares and appreciated shares of mutual funds. For More information about appreciated securities, please visit our Legacy Giving page.
  • Other assets, such works of art, rare books, real estate, and more, are also welcome contributions.
  • Bequests are the most common and most flexible means for planning a legacy gift to Mary Baldwin University. We honor our legacy donors through membership in the Kiracofe Society, named in honor of Charlene Kiracofe, Mary Baldwin Class of 1925.
  • You may use a life income arrangement to combine your desire to support the college and your need to generate personal income. Charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts are commonly used tools to accomplish both goals.
  • Imagine if you could double or triple your gift to Mary Baldwin University . . . If your company offers a matching gifts program, you may have the opportunity to double your support, as your gift will be combined with the company’s match. Check with your employer to see if they will match your charitable giving and how you may apply. Some companies even extend this benefit to spouses and retired employees. Please visit our directory as a resource to find out if your or your spouse’s company matches gifts, or contact us for assistance.

Additional Opportunities

You may receive a call from a current student through the Mary Baldwin Phonathon. We hope you look forward to chatting about what they love at Mary Baldwin, what’s happening at the university now, and how they experience the benefits of your generosity firsthand.

Honor a loved one by using the designated section of the reply card in Baldwin Fund solicitations to make an honorary gift. If you wish to establish a permanent memorial, please call or email us.

You may pledge your support by contacting us or in conversation with one of our Phonathon callers when they reach out to you for support. Your pledge may be a one-time gift to be paid later this year, or a long-term commitment that you will complete over the course of several years.
