Endowed Gifts

The most permanent of gifts, an endowed fund keeps giving back. Its principal is invested in the university’s endowment, while the fund generates a reliable and perennial source of funding for a purpose of your choosing. Many donors choose to create a named endowed fund to leave their own lasting Temple legacy, or to honor someone special.

Gifts of Stocks and Mutual Funds

Giving appreciated stocks or mutual funds is a great way to support excellence at Temple that unlocks extra value for you compared with making a gift of cash. The financial benefits to you are twofold. First, you avoid the capital gains taxes you would have to pay if selling these appreciated assets. Secondly, you receive an income tax deduction based on the market value of the gifted stock or fund. For Temple, the full value gift goes toward students, faculty, and programs.
