Most donors make gifts and pledge payments via online giving, check, credit card, or even payroll deduction for New Mexico State University faculty and staff. Others take advantage of tax savings that come from giving appreciated stocks, shares of mutual funds or property. If you have any questions on ways to fund your gift, please contact us.

Faculty/Staff Payroll Deduction

Think of a pledge as a gift with a payment plan. Pledges give donors the option to make payments toward a gift over time. Pledges are preferred by many donors who wish to make a big impact at NMSU, but seek the more flexible approach of spreading payments over a predetermined span of time.

Before you sell real estate, consider a new option—donate the property to New Mexico State University. You can give the property outright, place it in trust, retain the use of it for life or give it by will. All of these methods will enable you to enjoy personal financial benefits while supporting the University in a meaningful way.
Gifting appreciated real estate is an excellent choice for a charitable gift and, in most cases, a donor is entitled to a charitable deduction for the full gross market value of the property. This deduction lets you reduce the cost of making the gift and frees cash that otherwise would have been used to pay taxes. By donating the property to New Mexico State University, you also avoid capital gains tax on the property’s appreciation. Furthermore, the transfer is not subject to the gift tax, and the gift reduces your taxable estate.
For information on real estate gifts, contact Robert Peterson at 575.646.1613 or 800.342-6678.
Gifts of marketable stocks or mutual fund shares that have appreciated (increased in value) can have an immediate impact on your favorite program-and also create an immediate income tax deduction for you based on the assets' current value.
