Other ways to Give

Gift of Stocks, Bonds, or Other Securities

Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to our organization. Instructions are available at the Gift Securities Form.

Make a pledge

A pledge is a signed and dated commitment to make a gift by paying over a certain amount of time. This process allows you to spread payments and tax benefits for up to 5 years. Complete the Pledge Card to begin your pledge.

planned gift

A planned gift is a great way to leave a lasting legacy with Youngstown State University. These gifts can be made through many vehicles, including your will, revocable or irrevocable trusts, charitable gift annuities, or donor-advised funds. Planned gifts provide future support for the university and offer tax advantages for you and your heirs.

employer matching

Many employers sponsor matching gifts programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees or retirees. Your employer’s personnel office can provide you the information on how to take advantage of your company’s matching gift benefit.

Gift-In-Kind

A gift-in-kind involves the transfer of property other than cash. A tax receipt for the gift will be issued based on the fair market value of the item. Please refer to the Gift-in-kind Form to make a gift.

Payroll Deduction

YSU employees can make bi-weekly or semi-monthly donations through YSU salary deductions. Please complete the Payroll Deduction Form to make a payroll gift.
