GIVING MAKES A DIFFERENCE

The College of Pharmacy has an extraordinary record of support from individuals and corporations. We are especially proud of our record of alumni giving.

Every year we are able to award more than $300,000 in scholarships - financial assistance that students need now more than ever. Contributions help us recruit the best faculty and the best students. Donor contributions also help specialized programs within the College meet their program goals, such as faculty research and our graduate education programs.

Endowment Funds

Endowment funds are an investment in the future of the College. Annually, the College receives a percent of the value of each endowment to support scholarships, professorships or research -depending on the donor's wishes- and any additional income is reinvested in the fund. The principal remains untouched. Establishing an endowed fund creates a permanent legacy at the college. A minimum donation of $25,000 creates an endowed fund.

Planned Gifts

There are many different ways to make a planned gift to the college. These include bequests, charitable trusts, gift annuities, pooled income funds, and life insurance. Many of these vehicles offer you a lifetime income, with the remainder going to the college afterward. They also offer unique tax advantages. Many donors find planned gifts are an ideal way to support a cause that is important to them, while meeting their income needs and/or providing for family members.

Gifts of Property

Non-cash items, such as real estate, art collections, rare books, etc., may be gifted to the College of Pharmacy. Call Kelly Sylvester at 509-368-6675, if you are interested in exploring this type of donation.

Stock Transfers

You may either have your stockbroker contact us, or ask us to contact him/her so that stock can be transferred from your account to ours. Besides qualifying for a charitable deduction, direct transfers of stock avoid capital gains taxes.
