You may also make an online gift by phone using your credit card.

Making a pledge allows you to spread your gift commitment over a defined period of time. This way your desire to help Arizona Christian University with a larger gift is more affordable.
Giving stocks, mutual fund shares and bonds, particularly appreciated assets of this type, may have additional tax benefits for you. Before you make a gift of any securities, please call our office to verify the proper information and procedure for the transfer of the securities. We want to ensure that you receive the maximum tax benefit. We encourage you to check with your professional tax advisor.
Real estate property can be a beneficial gift. You may make an outright gift of property or use the property to fund life income gifts. You can also gift real estate to the college and reserve the right to occupy the property during your lifetime.
More than 1,000 companies have a philanthropic matching gift program, matching 1:1 or 2:1 and some will even triple your gift. You may be able to increase the impact of your gift. Please check with your employer’s HR department as you consider giving to Arizona Christian University. Send in the matching gift form with your gift.
TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY
Gifts of tangible personal property, (art objects, prized collection, and antiques) may provide a tax deduction for the fair market value if the gift is related to our tax exempt purpose.
A legacy gift can have long lasting impact while providing benefit to family and heirs. Please see our Planned Giving section of this web site for more information.
Naming Arizona Christian University as beneficiary of a life insurance policy can provide long-term benefit.
An exciting option is a single premium whole life policy that names Arizona Christian University as owner and beneficiary provides you with an immediate tax benefit and may provide funds in an emergency life-care situation. For example: A 50-yr. old male, non-smoker, takes a $100,000 policy, pays a one-time premium of approx. $35,000, receives immediate tax deduction for the $35,000 premium, may provide accelerated benefit for nursing home or terminal illness, if needed.

Many donors have provided needed athletic equipment, computer supplies & equipment, music instruments and equipment, furnishings, desks, lab equipment and other items needed by the college. Other gifts of merchandise, sports events & concert tickets, gift certificates, meals, etc. are also appreciated and used for benefit of our students. Please check with the advancement department to determine if your gift will benefit the school.
You may wish to provide student scholarships. Endowed Scholarship Funds, permanently restricted, which are specifically named and disbursed according to the donor’s desires, may be established for gifts of $20,000 or more. They provide scholarship funds through the income generated annually on the principal amount.
