Ways to Give

There are many ways to give to the Newhouse School.

Gifts of Cash

This is the most common and easiest way to make an outright charitable contribution. You can give online or mail your gift to:

Jodie M. Ralston
Executive Director, Advancement Services
Advancement and External Affairs
Syracuse University
640 Skytop Road, Room 240
Syracuse, NY 13244-5160

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

Stocks or other appreciated assets donated to Syracuse University can qualify you for an income tax deduction and potentially spare you capital gains taxes.

Bequest Gift

Leaving a gift in your will is the simplest way to make a larger gift. It works for most donors—single or married, childfree or multi-generational, wealthy or not. 

Life Insurance

If you are holding a paid-up life insurance policy, but may not need the proceeds, making Syracuse University and the Newhouse School a beneficiary is a good way to give without affecting your current cash flow. You would have the flexibility to change your beneficiary designation later if circumstances change.

Retirement Plan Assets

This works well for a donor who does not need the additional income and wants to avoid the “double taxation” on the minimum required distribution (MRD). You would maximize your heirs’ inheritance by donating a highly-taxed asset.

To discuss these giving options and other gift planning vehicles including real estate or personal property, contact Carol Satchwell, assistant dean for advancement at cmsatchw@syr.edu or 315-443-5281.
