How to Make a Gift

When making a gift to NYIT, you can feel confident about investing in a world-class institution. There are several ways that you can provide financial support while creating tax benefits for yourself, your family, or your organization.

Gifts of 'Cash' (Cash, Check, or Credit Card)

Gifts of "cash" are the simplest, most direct, and most popular type of charitable gift.

Gifts of Marketable Securities

Gifts of securities such as stocks, mutual fund shares, or other appreciated assets can be a great tax-efficient method for making a gift to NYIT. In most instances, you can receive an income tax deduction equal to the full market value of the securities on the date of the gift.

Gifts Through Estate Planning

Through careful planning, you can protect your estate, establish a legacy, and support NYIT and its students. Depending on the type of gift you choose, you may be able to enjoy current and future tax benefits, provide a lifetime of income for yourself, or ensure the financial well-being of your beneficiaries. Types of estate gifts include:

  • Bequests: a gift made to NYIT in a donor's will
  • Life Insurance/Retirement Plans: by naming NYIT as beneficiary you may receive significant tax benefits
  • Life Income Gifts: these gifts provide ongoing payments to you or NYIT while offering generous tax benefits

Gifts of Tangible Personal Property

These donations are not monetary and may consist of equipment, artwork, items for auctions such as tickets to sporting events, specialty materials for projects, and furniture. Such gifts will be accepted if deemed of scholarly interest and/or of use to the college. Please note that NYIT cannot appraise or assign value to gifts of tangible property.
