More Ways to Give
Thank you for considering a gift of securities in support of IPS. Gifts of securities may offer significant tax benefits to the donor. Please contact IPS and your tax professional for guidance.
To Make a Gift of Securities
Please contact Jim O’Day, Vice President, Institutional Advancement with complete donor information (name, address, phone number), the name and type of securities to be gifted (public, private, restricted, mutual fund, etc.), the number of shares, and the date you intend to make the gift.
One of the best ways to maximize your charitable contribution to IPS is through a special benefit many companies offer their employees: the matching gift program.
Through matching gift programs, many companies allow employees the opportunity to multiply the impact of their personal contributions. If your company sponsors a matching gift program, you can easily increase the impact your gift will have on students, faculty, and programs at IPS! Most participating companies will match employee gifts dollar for dollar. Some will even double- or triple-match a gift. Please check with your company’s human resources department to see if they sponsor a matching gift program.

- Please include with your contribution the honoree’s name and address, so that the University may notify that person of your thoughtfulness. In the case of a deceased honoree, please also include the name(s) and address of the family member(s) to whom you would like an acknowledgment sent, as well as their relationship to the deceased.
- Typically, an acknowledgment letter will be sent to the donor (including IRS language), and then a letter will be sent to the honoree or honoree’s family. That letter will include the donor’s name and address, but not the gift amount
