Ways To Give

If you need specific advice, please contact the Advancement Office and we’ll be happy to discuss giving plans with you. Here are a few suggested means of making a contribution to the College.

Monthly Draft


Alumni and friends of the College can establish automatic, monthly gifts which are made directly from their credit or debit card, or bank account. It’s easy and convenient and allows a donor to make a larger annual contribution to Emory & Henry each year but have the donation divided throughout the year to make it more affordable. To make a monthly gift, click here. For more information about the monthly draft process, contact Patty Hunt toll-free at 877.220.0342.


By Mail


To make a gift by mail, send a check or money order payable to Emory & Henry College to:

Office of Advancement

Emory & Henry College

P.O. Box 950

Emory, VA 24327


By Phone
Credit and debit card gifts may be made to the College between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, by calling the Office of Advancement toll-free at 877.220.0342.

Estate Gifts
Estate planning is not only a great means to support the College, but it is also smart planning for your family. Read more about estate gifts here, or contact Greg McMillan: gmcmillan@ehc.edu

Stock Gifts

If you have appreciated stock, it is easy to make a gift to Emory & Henry that will have favorable tax treatment. For example, a donor who gives a gift of common stock, held longer than one year, avoids capital gains taxation on the transfer, and the full value of the contribution goes to the College. The donor is able to take a charitable deduction using the full value of the gift and can claim up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI) in the year the gift is made with up to five years to absorb the full deduction under the AGI ceiling.


HOW TO MAKE A STOCK TRANSFER:


Electronically Transferring Stock – The preferred, easiest, and fastest way to make a transfer of stock is electronically. Please contact Wells Fargo Advisors at the address below.

In addition, please inform Emory & Henry’s Office of Institutional Advancement of the type of stock to be transferred and either the number of shares to be transferred or the approximate value of the stock.

The date of the gift will be the date of the transfer, and the value will be the mean value of the stock on the date of the gift.

Gifts-in-Kind


Non-monetary gifts such as antiques, book collections, artwork or other tangible items are often acceptable “in-kind” donations to the College and may qualify as tax-deductible gifts. Donations of services, however, do not qualify as being tax-deductible. For more information on making a gift in-kind to the College, please contact the E&H Advancement Office at 276-944-6540 or pfhunt@ehc.edu.


Matching Gifts


Many employers offer a matching gift benefit for employees’ (current or retired) charitable donations. Asking your employer to match your gift to the College increases your level of giving to the College.

To make a matching gift, please request the paperwork from your company’s Human Resources Department and send the signed forms to:


Office of Advancement

Emory & Henry College

P.O. Box 950

Emory, VA 24327


Special Gifts


The College is pleased to accept gifts made in memory of, or in honor of, special individuals. Unless otherwise accepted through a specific arrangement, such gifts will be designated to the Emory & Henry (annual) Fund to be expended at the discretion of the College to satisfy its greatest needs.
