Giving FAQ

Can I give online?

Yes, using the Newhouse School’s secure, online giving form. All major credit cards are accepted, and you can even set up a recurring donation schedule. Once you submit your gift, you will be directed to a confirmation page, which you can print. You will also receive a confirmation email.

Are my gifts tax-deductible?

Yes. Syracuse University is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a 501(c)(3) entity. Outright gifts, bequests, transfers and other gifts are deductible for federal estate and tax gift purposes if they meet the applicable provisions of the IRS Code.

Can I make a gift in installments?

Yes. Larger gifts can be broken up into pledge payments that can be made over time (not to exceed five years), enabling you to accomplish your philanthropic goals conveniently. Please contact Carol Satchwell at cmsatchw@syr.edu to structure a gift agreement that works for you.

Can I give a gift to honor or memorialize someone?

Memorial scholarships and similar gifts are frequently given in the name of a significant person or group. These gifts are a powerful way to honor your past and make an impact on the future at the same time. Please contact Carol Satchwell at cmsatchw@syr.edu for assistance with this process.
