Online. You can make your gift online now by credit card using our secure online giving website.

Cash. Make your check payable to the MTSU Foundation, and mail it to:

Office of Development
MTSU PO Box 109
Murfreesboro, TN 37132

Be sure to note the purpose, or designation, of your gift on the memo line of your check or include a brief note. Gifts without designation will be placed into the Annual Fund.

Credit Cards and Electronic Fund Transfer. A one-time or regularly occurring bank draft or credit card donation can be set up from your bank account to MTSU.

Corporate Matching. Many corporations will match the gifts of their employees to qualifying charities. Some double or triple the amount of your gift. Your company's Human Resource Department can provide details and the matching gift form to include with your check.

Securities. Your gift of appreciated stock is tax-deductible and helps you avoid long-term capital gains tax. It is typically to your advantage to transfer appreciated securities to the Foundation directly rather than selling them and giving cash. Please contact our office at (615) 898-5006 for instructions on making this transfer. Even if you have given stock previously, please notify our office so that your gift is properly designated and you receive the appropriate tax credit.

Real Estate. The MTSU Foundation accepts gifts of real estate, including private residences, farms, commercial property and land. A variety of tax benefits may be available to the donor. Each gift is unique, and we encourage you to discuss your options with our office along with your personal financial or tax advisor.

Gifts In-Kind. Works of art, rare books, equipment and other tangible personal property can help support education at MTSU. Such gifts must be appraised by an outside expert if the value is more than $5,000 or must have a documented receipt value.

Planned Gifts are made through an individual or family estate. They can include insurance, bequests, and a variety of other instruments such as Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Remainder Trusts.
