Non-Cash Gifts

Many types of assets may be used to provide gifts to support Washington State University. A variety of methods of giving allows donors to choose the most appropriate asset for their circumstances and interests.

Gifts of Stock. Gifts of marketable stocks or mutual fund shares can benefit WSU while creating a favorable income tax deduction for you.

Real Estate. The WSU Foundation may accept gifts of real estate, including houses, condominiums, commercial properties, farm land, rental property, or undeveloped land.

Life Insurance. By naming the WSU Foundation a beneficiary of an insurance policy, you can amplify the relatively small annual premium costs for the policy to provide a transformational gift to benefit WSU programs.

Bushels for Butch. Gifts of grain or other crops will ensure WSU can continue our great work in support of the farmers of Washington.

In-Kind Gifts. In-kind gifts are contributions of goods or services of value to the University, such as book collections, artwork, equipment, etc. Known as “gifts in kind,” these non-monetary donations constitute another important avenue of support for Washington State University.

To learn more about any of these non-cash gift options, please contact the development officer for the WSU area you would like to support, or contact the WSU Foundation at 509-335-6686 or
