There is often an impression that gifts not designated to a specific program area don't make a difference. The fact is that you have the ability to direct your Annual Fund gift to any of the fourteen colleges and units-or directly to the University to be put to use by the provost-named on the Cornell Annual Fund pledge card.
Thank you for considering a gift to the Cornell Annual Fund! You join an impressive group of alumni, parents, and friends, beginning with Ezra Cornell and continuing to today's senior class.
Gifts may be made in a variety of forms, including cash, securities, and real estate, or through planned gifts, such as bequests, life income agreements or the Cornell University Foundation. Gifts to Cornell are tax-deductible to the full extent of the Internal Revenue Code.
Please make checks payable to Cornell University and send to Cornell Annual Fund, P.O. Box 223623, Pittsburgh, PA 15251-2623.
Gift of securities or other appreciated assets:
Contact Cornell's Office of Trusts, Estates, and Gift Planning by phone at 1.800.377.2177 or by email at email@example.com.
You can electronically fill out and print or manually fill out and print the graduate, general, or young alumni (alumni graduating in the last 10 years) pledge card and mail it to Cornell Annual Fund, P.O. Box 223623, Pittsburgh, PA 15251-2623. Please note that you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these cards. If you can't see the cards, download Adobe Acrobat Reader here.
While many donors prefer to make gifts of cash - a growing number are taking advantage of contributing gifts of long-term appreciated securities to support the educational goals of Cornell University. To contribute securities now, go to our online stock transfer form and instructions.
By including Cornell in your financial and estate plans, you may increase your current income and provide future support for areas of the university important to you. Often you can make a larger gift than you might have thought possible - while also benefiting yourself.
