Tax credits must be used for the year the contribution is made and are available until December 31, 2015. For additional information, contact Heather Parr-Stewart Lang at or 443-527-2229.

Charitable Bequest

A will provides unique ways to be philanthropic. You may leave many types of gifts to a charity by making a charitable bequest through your will. Types of bequest gifts could be a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount, or personal property. Providing a charitable bequest will allow you leave a legacy or memorialize a loved one while enhancing the value of your estate. Doing so will let you leave a legacy or memorialize a loved one, while enhancing the value of your estate.

Charitable Gift Annuity

With a charitable gift annuity, you make a gift to Stevenson University and, in return, receive a guaranteed fixed amount of income per year for life. The amount you receive is based on your age when you establish the annuity and whether it includes payments for you or a spouse as well.

Gift annuities also provide you with significant tax benefits:*

  • A charitable deduction taken on your tax return the year you make the gift
  • Tax savings on the income you receive from the annuity
  • If your annuity is funded with appreciated stock, you avoid capital gains tax on part of the gain, and spread out the remaining capital gains tax over your life expectancy

*Tax benefits vary by income and circumstances. Please consult your accountant to maximize tax savings.
