How to Give

Other Payment Methods


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

Bank Draft/ACH Draft

The Lander Foundation now has the capability to initiate electronic debit entries for your donations.  If you would like to donate via ACH transfer, please click the link and complete the ACH Form and return it and a voided check to Peggy Gorham-Cromer at the above address under CASH/CHECKS.


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

Real Estate

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.

Life Insurance

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 sizable gift.

Trusts and Annuities

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.

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.
