Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund includes gifts made to Methodist University during the fiscal year (July 1 - June 30) which support all areas of the University's operating budget. This is the year-in-year-out fund that helps to cover the annual costs of operating Methodist University.

Why support the Annual Fund?
Tuition and fees cover only 74% of the University's annual operating budget. Methodist University is a non-profit 501-C (3) organization, with an operating budget in excess of $37 million. It receives no income or operating support from the state or federal level.

Unrestricted Gifts
Unrestricted gifts made to the University are used where they're needed most and will have the most immediate impact on student needs. They support everything from scholarships, library materials, athletic equipment, and faculty recruitment.

Restricted Gifts
Gifts can be restricted for specific purposes including the alumni association, scholarship fund, academic area or program or athletic team. You may restrict the use of your gift by indicating this on your check or with a note.

How do I make a gift?
Gifts may be made by credit card, bank draft, cash, check, gift of stock, land, or gifts-in-kind to the school. Contact the College to learn about the many different planned giving opportunities available.

Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes. Gifts to the College are deductible for income tax purposes to the extent permitted by law. Be sure to keep receipts for your records.

Make your gift go further
