You can set up recurring gifts to Carolina via bank draft and have the funds transferred to the University to support one or more areas. At Carolina, drafts are made on the 15th of each month, and can be set to withdraw a pre-determined amount until you say otherwise; or as payment on a pledge with an end date corresponding to the final payment (pledge period cannot exceed five years.)
UNC Employees paid through University Payroll Services can set up a payroll deduction based on your payroll schedule, bi-weekly or monthly. Your gift can benefit one or more areas and counts in the campaign’s faculty and staff initiative. UNC Health Care employees should contact the hospital’s payroll department for information about payroll deduction.
A pledge enables a donor to plan a gift to Carolina and pay it over a period of years, usually five. A pledge payment schedule is created and reminders are sent 90 days prior. The pledge counts in campaign totals and you receive recognition credit as well. Pledges can support one or more funds at the University.
A transfer of appreciated securities is an easy way to make a gift to Carolina while avoiding capital gains taxes. Shares can be transferred electronically through your brokerage account or you can donate paper shares if you hold the certificates. You will receive an income tax deduction on the fair market value of the shares on the date of transfer into the University’s brokerage account.
Does your employer match charitable contributions? If so, applying for a matching gift through your employer’s matching gift program helps leverage the impact of your gift. You receive recognition for the matched funds in addition to your gift and the total will be used for your intended purpose.
