Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds

IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts

The IRA Charitable Rollover provides you with an excellent opportunity to make a gift during your lifetime from an asset that would be subject to multiple levels of taxation if it remained in your taxable estate. 

Donor Advised Funds

Donor-advised funds (DAF) allow people to establish a charitable account in exchange for an immediate tax deduction. If you have a DAF, you can easily choose for the Middlebury Institute to receive grants from the funds. 

Gift and Estate Planning

A planned gift can provide income to you and your loved ones, while enabling you to have a significant impact on the Middlebury Institute. Our experts can help you integrate your charitable giving with your overall tax, financial, and estate planning.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Matching gifts can double or even triple the size of your gift, and they count toward your total giving. 

Real Estate

Donate residential, commercial or undeveloped real estate and provide support for Middlebury Institute students and faculty, while saving on taxes, reducing responsibilities associated with property ownership, and meeting your own needs.  

Personal Property

Donate books, art, antiques, equipment, or other personal property to support the Institute and gain significant tax advantages.

UK Trust

If you live in the United Kingdom, you can make a tax-deductible gift to the Middlebury Institute through the UK Trust.
