Make a Gift in Honor of Memory

Tribute gifts can be made in honor of memory of a loved one or friend. In order for your tribute letter to arrive in time for the holidays, we ask that gifts be received before December 15, 2020.

Make a Charitable Gift from Your IRA

If you are age 70½ or older, you can make a qualified charitable deduction (QCD) gift from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) directly to Pacific University. Such gifts go toward satisfying your annual minimum distribution and are tax positive, as they are excluded from your taxable income and avoid limits on deductions. Detailed information, including changes by the SECURE and CARES Acts can be found here.

Funds must be transferred directly from your IRA account to Pacific University in order to qualify for the tax break. Qualified charitable contributions from an IRA must come out of your account by Dec. 31 each year in order to exclude that amount from taxable income.
