Give from your IRA — If you are 70 1/2 or older, you can give directly from your IRA to Transylvania without having to pay income taxes on the money. Gifts of $105,000 or less are eligible, so long as they are directed from your IRA custodian to Transylvania (rather than taking the disbursement yourself and then gifting it.) This is a very smart way to contribute, and those who max out the allowable annual gift provide the equivalent of two full-tuition/fees scholarships that year for Transy students! 

If you have any questions about this process, please call the Alumni & Development Office directly at 800‑4‑Transy (800‑487‑2679) or giving@transy.edu.
