 Funding your Gift 



Your gift may be made in the form of cash, appreciated securities, personal property or estates.  Different assets offer different tax advantages, please consult your tax advisor to select the most beneficial way.


Cash gifts can be made to the University via a check or credit or debit card. Checks should be made payable to the Slippery Rock University Foundation, Inc. and mailed to:

The Slippery Rock University Foundation, Inc.
P.O. Box 233
Slippery Rock PA 16057

Please be sure to indicate the designation for your gift on the memo line of your check.

Appreciated Securities

Gifting appreciated securities allows you to fund your gift while receiving a tax benefit.  You can avoid losing a substantial portion of your earnings to capital gains tax by making gifts of appreciated stock.

Gifts of Personal Property

Gifts of personal property, also know as gifts in kind, can be charitably given to benefit Slippery Rock University.  These gifts must be properly appraised by an independent appraiser prior to gifting them.

Planned Giving

Planned giving ensures a base of support for Slippery Rock University's future and is a popular method of making a significant gift.  Estate and financial planning encourages donors to make contributions to the University program of their choice, while benefiting their income tax and/or estate tax situation at the same time.
