Year-end donations support Transylvania students

Transylvania walking through snowy campus

Year-end giving to Transylvania University will help provide students with scholarships, campus programming and the support of faculty dedicated to excellence in teaching.

Make a gift here by Dec. 31 for a 2023 tax deduction. If you’re mailing in a donation, the envelope must be postmarked by Dec. 30 to receive a current-year tax deduction.

The contributions of donors, including alumni like John Kuchenbrod ’92, are a testament to the transformative value they see in a Transylvania education. “The support of others made it possible for me to go to Transy, and it changed my life,” Kuchenbrod said. “I want to change the lives of others.”

This year, donors can combine efforts and Make It a Match, turning $12,500 into $25,000 for students. The matching contributions are made possible through the generosity of the school’s partnership with the Jessie Ball duPont Fund. Individual gifts up to $500 will be doubled through Dec. 31 while the funds last (there’s no limit on the amount of gifts a particular donor can make).

If you’re making a year-end contribution, keep in mind:

– If it’s stock, be sure to contact your financial adviser so it reaches Transylvania by Dec. 29 for this year’s tax-deduction.

– Staff are in the office (415 N. Broadway) Dec. 27 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and Dec. 29 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. for in-person drop-offs.
