More than One Way to Give

Ways to Give

For your convenience, LeTourneau offers you several ways to give a donation to the University. LeTourneau University is recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c) (3) organization. Federal tax identification number is #75-1081109. All gifts are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed or as noted on your donation receipt. Gifts designated to cover the expenses of individual students are not tax-deductible. Gifts designated for restricted scholarship funds are tax-deductible as long as the criteria are not limited to benefiting only one specific individual.

ONLINE

Give to LeTourneau online through our secure online server. A confirmation email will be immediately sent to you and can be used as a donation receipt; however, a formal acknowledgement of your gift will be mailed to you within 2 weeks. Give now. (www.letu.edu/give)  You may donate using your credit card, or by an electronic draft directly from your bank account.  Your gift can be a one-time donation or automatically recur every month.

GIVING BY ELECTRONIC OR GIFT TRANSFER

You can make a gift to LeTourneau without having to write and mail a check or receive pledge reminders. Simply sign up for our automatic contribution plan.

The plan allows you to designate a specific amount to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account each month (minimum $25). The amount is then transferred to LeTourneau University. The transfer will appear on your monthly bank statement. The process is similar to direct depositing a paycheck. Donations will be deducted on the 18th of each month.

To set up an electronic funds transfer, please contact Kendall Harper or call 903-233-3819.

You will need to seek advice of a qualified estate and/or tax professional to ensure you choose the right way for you. Learn more now, email us or call 903-233-3800.

GIVING BY GIFTS-IN-KIND

Gifts-in-kind refer to non-cash donations of materials or long-lived assets. Examples include items such as art objects, prized collections, antiques, products, computer software and hardware, office products and supplies, educational materials, etc. Gifts-in-kind can be designated as one time gifts or as on-going programs.

All gifts-in-kind to LeTourneau University must be approved by the offices of University Development, Business and Finance, and the department responsible for receiving the actual gift.

LeTourneau University will issue a receipt indicating that a gift-in-kind has been received; however, LeTourneau does not value the gift-in-kind on the gift receipt. The donor is responsible for obtaining the fair market value at the time of the gift. If the gift-in-kind is valued by the donor at more than $5,000, then an appraisal must be obtained by the donor. We suggest you contact a tax accountant concerning how these donations may apply to your individual tax issues.
