How to Make a Gift

Each gift, no matter what size, helps Nevada State College continue to grow and to guide our students to personal and professional success.

Giving can take a variety of forms, from sending a check to including the College in your estate plans. For example:

The simplest way to support NSC is to give online or send a check.

Cash gifts, which can be made using a check or credit card, are simple and the most common.. These gifts allow Nevada State College through the Foundation to put the contribution to use immediately for the benefit of students and faculty. Cash gifts are also fully deductible for federal income tax purposes.

A gift of appreciated stocks and bonds can result in special tax savings for you, while contributing to the success of the College.

Gifts of appreciated securities stocks and bonds provide important tax advantages to the donor. The full fair market value of the donation is fully deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes.

When you include NSC in your estate plans with a bequest, life insurance policy, or annuity, you leave a meaningful legacy. In some cases, a planned gift can pay you back, too.

Naming NSC as the beneficiary of a retirement plan can provide a number of tax advantages.

Using retirement plan assets to make a charitable contribution gives donors financial and tax advantages. Naming Nevada State College through the Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement plan including IRA's, 401(k)s and profit-sharing plans may eliminate estate and income taxes.

Gifting a residence, vacation home, commercial building, land or vacant property may provide many tax advantages. Real estate can also be a source of lifetime income for Nevada State College.

If you employer has a matching gift program, you can double or even triple the impact of your gift.

Setting up an endowment to benefit Nevada State College students in your family's name, by means of a bequest in your will or living trust, is a wonderful way to support your philanthropic priorities in perpetuity.

By assigning ownership of life insurance to the Foundation, donors may receive tax deductions for the cash value of the policy and the yearly premiums.

Most gifts to Nevada State College are tax deductible.
