Donor-Advised Funds

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) a giving tool that provides a simple, flexible, and efficient way to manage your charitable giving, and can be an alternative to direct giving or creating a private foundation. This is accomplished by first establishing a DAF with an irrevocable gift to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program, such as a community foundation. The donor then recommends the allocation of the donated assets to a qualified public charity (such as Midland University).

If you have questions about recommending gifts via Donor-Advised Funds, please contact Jessica Janssen, Vice President of Development, at 402-941-6523 or janssen@midlandu.edu.

Gifts in Kind

A gift of tangible personal property, such as a work or collection of art, rare books, stamp or coin collection, etc., entitles the donor to a charitable deduction based on the full fair market (appraised) value of the gift if the gift complies with the standard of “related use” regarding the designation at and use by Midland University. For more information, please contact Brad Eberspacher, Director of Annual Giving, at 402-941-6053 or eberspacherb@midlandu.edu.
