How to contribute
There are several ways to become a donor to Co-Lin Athletics. Here are a few ways you can support the Wolf Pack.
Cash and checks are always acceptable. Make all checks payable to the Co-Lin Foundation. You may also make your contributions using your VISA and/or Mastercard. It is important to list the name of the cardholder, the account number and the expiration date on the contribution card. Please contact the Co-Lin Foundation at 601.643.8313.
Many companies will match your gifts to the Co-Lin Foundation. Please consult the benefits office at your office at you place of employment. You may be able to double or triple the value of your gift and benefits. Many companies are not matching gifts if the donor receives any benefit as a result of the gift. Please check with the Co-Lin Foundation Office and your company to be sure that the matching sum can be applied to your benefits. If the company chooses to cease matching a donor's gift, the donor is responsible for the entire annual contribution to maintain the same benefits.
Gifts of Real Property & Securities
Gifts of real property and securities are welcomed and may provide significant tax advantages for donors. Appreciated stocks can be transferred electronically which, in some circumstances, can be enable donors to realize significant capital gains and savings while helping the Co-Lin Foundation provide essential support. Consult your tax advisor for details.
Estate, Life Income & Endowments Gifts
Gifts through wills and bequests can provide you with benefits and the opportunity to support Wolf Pack Athletics. Estate gifts can be made with a designated amount, a real asset or residual bequest. Charitable remainder trust provides several advantages to donors and the Co-LIn Foundation. The trusts can be funded through gifts of cash, securities or real property. They provide the donor with income for a designated period of time or life. They provide the athletic department with a gift upon the completion of the trust or donor's death. Possible tax advantages could exist. Please consult with your attorney or tax advisor for further details.
Under applicable provisions of the IRS code, the amount of a contribution that is deductible for federal income tax purposes is limited to the excess of the amount contributed over the value of any goods or services provided to the donor by the University. The athletics department will notify you as to the value of any such items. Consult your tax advisor to determine how to apply and/or deduct donation for tax purposes.
