More About Ways to Give to the Institute for Women’s Leadership
Outright gifts of cash, securities, and real estate have an immediate impact.
A pledge is a formal statement of intention to make a gift. It may be followed by an immediate gift or may outline your intention to make a future gift. Many donors complete a pledge by making regular payments over a period of time, usually over five years.

Gifts of Endowment
An endowment may be established with gifts of $100,000 or more to provide continuing support to a designated program. The endowment is maintained in perpetuity, with a portion of the annual investment return used for purposes specified by the donor.
Appreciated and Closely Held Securities
A gift of long-term appreciated marketable securities helps you save taxes twice by providing an income tax charitable deduction and a capital gains tax savings. A gift of closely held securities may allow the donor to enjoy tax savings and has the potential to increase income from the donated stock.
Many corporations match or multiply their employees' gifts up to a set amount. Before you make a gift, you should ask if your employer participates in such a program.
Planned gifts have specific tax advantages and can include lifetime income to a donor's beneficiary. Advantages include income and capital gains tax savings, increased income, and possible estate tax savings.
