Other Ways to Give


Gifts of marketable stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares that have appreciated can have an immediate impact on the DSU programs you wish to support. They’ll also create an immediate income tax deduction for you based on the stock's current value. Contact us to give a gift of stock or click below to do it yourself!

Electronic Funds Transfer

You may authorize a monthly transfer of funds from your checking or savings account to the Foundation. Contact us to request the electronic funds transfer form.

Land and Commodity Gifts

Tax benefits can be realized through land and commodity gifts. Consult with your tax advisor and crop insurance agent for more information. DSU Foundation and its employees do not provide tax or legal advice, however, to set up a transfer of these gifts please reach out to us.
