Giving to Lander and event registration has never been easier!  Your gift or ticket purchases can be made using a credit card with our online form. For Tickets, input the event name and all names in your party within the "Gift Comment" section. To contribute to a named scholarship, input the specific scholarship within the "Gift Comment" section.

If you do not want to use our online giving process, you may call the Lander Foundation at 864-388-8350. Our office staff will be happy to take your credit card information and process your donation or ticket purchases.

In order to properly record gifts, donors should use checks made payable to:

The Lander Foundation
Lander University
320 Stanley Avenue
Campus Box 6004
Greenwood, South Carolina 29649

Listed stocks and bonds that have increased in value are excellent gifts, assuming the securities have been held for the required length of time.

Property that has increased in value is a wise donation because the full value of the gift is tax deductible.  The donor's profit will not be taxable as gain.

The cash-surrendered value of a life insurance policy is immediately tax deductible.  Later gifts made to pay the premium are also deductible.  More importantly, the donor has the satisfaction of providing The Lander Foundation with a sizeable gift.

Cash, marketable securities, or real estate may be used to establish a charitable trust or annuity from which the donor would receive income for life.  Upon the donor's death, the assets would go to The Lander Foundation.

Gifts willed to The Lander Foundation are of mutual benefit to The Foundation and the donor.

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please click the link below and enter your employer's name.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to our school may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
