Learn which assets are most commonly used to fund a gift.

Cash

One of the most common ways to make a gift to Western New England University is to write a check, give a credit card number, or donate online.

Stocks & Bonds

Giving long-term appreciated stock is one of the most tax advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting Western New England University.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield your heirs from taxes while funding WNE's future.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. It can be made without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.

Real Estate

A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages and make a significant charitable gift to WNE.

Personal Property

A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support WNE.
