In most cases, a donor may avoid capital gains taxes by donating them to Penn State New Kensington.

Corporate Matching Gifts
Corporate matching gifts are a great way for Penn State alumni, parents, and friends to maximize personal contributions to the University and increase the impact of their gift. By taking advantage of a company's matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of a contribution.

Many corporations and businesses in our local area have a matching gift program. Each company has its own guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees, and widows/widowers. Most corporate procedures can be done in three easy steps:

Request a Matching Form or website from your company.
Complete and submit the form, electronically or on paper, to Penn State along with your gift.
The company issues a matching gift contribution to Penn State.
Please send completed forms along with your personal gift to:

Penn State New Kensington
Office of Development
3550 Seventh Street Road

Planned Gifts
Planned giving is often a cornerstone in a University's long-term fundraising priorities. These gifts are usually deferred, meaning they are arranged now and fulfilled later. Planned gifts frequently benefit a donor and their family by providing additional income and offering immediate tax advantages. Examples of planned gifts include donations made through a donor's will or retirement plan, charitable gift annuities, and charitable remainder trusts. For more information on the many planned giving options, please contact Kary Coleman at 724-334-6057.
