What is an outright gift?
An outright gift is any gift of cash to College of Saint Elizabeth. The most common way for donors to make an outright gift of cash is to write a check payable to us.

Gift provides immediate support
Unlike some other gift arrangements, your outright gift will provide resources that CSE can put to immediate use. If you prefer to restrict our use of your gift in any way, please contact us so that we can be sure that we can carry out your wishes.   

Cash
This is the simplest way to make an outright gift. Just write a check payable to College of Saint Elizabeth. You may deduct the full amount of your donation up to 50% of your adjusted gross income. You may carry forward all unused deduction for up to five additional years. Most people when asked for a gift think of the amount available to them in their checking or savings accounts. You may also make a cash gift using your credit cards.

Example

Susan McNeil would like to make an immediate $15,000 gift to College of Saint Elizabeth. Susan could write a check for this amount and earn a charitable deduction equal to $15,000. Alternatively, Susan could make a gift using her credit card by calling us on the phone, responding to a mailing, or by donating online through our website. Gifts of checks and gifts made via credit cards are considered cash gifts.

Benefits

  • Susan may deduct up to 50% of her adjusted gross income for her gift of cash.
  • If Susan cannot use the entire deduction in the year of gift, she may carry the balance forward for five additional years. 
  • Assuming she can use the entire deduction, Susan will earn an income tax charitable deduction of $15,000, which will save her $5,940 (39.6% tax).
  • Susan will gain the satisfaction of making a $15,000 gift to CSE.
