Calendar Year-End Giving 2014—Giving Made Easy!

We want to take this time to THANK YOU for your loyalty to the university. Your gifts go a long way in helping provide a Transylvania University education to our 1,100 students each year.

With December 31 upon us, please consider making a gift to Transylvania. In order to ensure that your gifts are processed before the 2014 tax deadline, we encourage you to complete your charitable giving before December 31, 2014. Please note that Transylvania's campus will close at 4 p.m. on Friday, December 19, 2014, and reopen Monday, January 5, 2015.

Ways to Give

  • Credit Card—Online credit card gifts must be made by 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, December 31, 2014. To ensure that all credit card gifts are processed before the 2014 tax deadline, please make your gift online instead of mailing credit card information to the development office.
  • Check—If you prefer to make your gift with a check, make it payable to Transylvania University and mail it to: Development Office, Transylvania University, 300 North Broadway, Lexington, KY 40508. Envelopes must be postmarked by Wednesday, December 31, 2014, to count as a 2014 income tax deduction. Please check with your local post office to determine holiday hours. Checks or cash may also be dropped off in person by Friday, December 19, 2014, before 4 p.m., the last day our office will be open before the holidays.
