Year-End Giving 2013

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 1,200 students each year. In fact, your gifts yield tangible results, evident in the faces of the students in each year's graduating class. Each student's diploma has—in part—been possible because of those who believe enough in Transylvania to support it with personal resources.

With December 31 upon us, please consider making a gift to Transylvania. In order to ensure that your gifts are processed before the 2013 tax deadline, we encourage you to complete your charitable giving before December 31, 2013. Please note that Transylvania’s campus will close at 4 p.m. on Friday, December 20, 2013, and reopen Monday, January 6, 2014.

Ways to give

  • Credit card—Online credit card gifts must be made by 11:59 p.m., Tuesday, December 31, 2013. To ensure that all credit card gifts are processed before the 2013 tax deadline, please make your gift online (www.transy.edu/giving/) instead of mailing credit card information to the development office. It is important to know that the date of your credit card gift is the date the gift is processed by your financial institution, not when received or processed by us.
  • 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 Tuesday, December 31, 2013, to count as a 2013 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 20, 2013, before noon, the last day our office will be open before the holidays.
  • Securities—Securities must be received and in the university account by December 31, 2013, to be deductible in 2013.  Most brokerage firms will be closed on December 31, so please contact your broker in advance.
