The success of Brenau University depends on the leadership of a few and the broadest participation of many. Supporting Brenau University philanthropically is rewarding and meaningful as it makes an immeasurable impact on both our current students and faculty, and the many generations to come.
We offer a wide variety of gift options and our staff is available to assist you in making your gift. We hope all alumni and friends will choose to support the Brenau Annual Fund each and every year and have made it a priority to increase alumni participation.
Gifts to Brenau can be made in a number of ways. Your gift may be restricted to a specific initiative or may be designated to the area of greatest need.
Gifts of Cash:Cash gifts are immediately available to the university for both designated and undesignated purposed. Pledges may be paid over a period of up to five years, allowing many donors to make a larger gift – and leave a larger legacy – than initially thought possible. You may mail your check to External Relations; 500 Washington St. S.E., Gainesville, Georgia 30501 or make a credit card gift online through our online giving form or call Carrie Williams at +1-770-534-6163.
Gifts of Securities, Real Estate and Personal Property:Gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual funds allow you to make a gift to the university and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full fair market value while also avoiding payment of capital gains tax. Gifts of real estate may be the entire property or a fractional interest of the property. You may give real estate as a current gift and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the gift. Gifts must meet certain criteria in order to be accepted by the university. For more details or to discuss such a gift, please contact our office at +1-770-718-5309.
Through these gifts, you are making an immeasurable impact on and investment in the future of Brenau University. Thank you for joining with us to strengthen the institution for current and future generations of students.
