Ways to Give

Gifts to PVCC provide college supporters with the opportunity to invest in the potential of our students and the wider community we serve. Structuring gifts with tax consequences and income opportunities in mind, donors may be able to achieve some additional financial goals as well. 

Outright Gifts

Outright gifts allow donors to see gifts at work during their lifetime. All outright gifts can result in income tax savings, and donors may realize multiple benefits by carefully structuring such gifts.

CashCash gifts are the simplest way to give and are tax deductible during the year in which they are made.  Gifts can be made online with a credit card through or secure website or can be made via check to the PVCC Educational Foundation at 501 College Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22902.
Matching GiftsDouble your impact! Many employers will match your gift to the PVCC Educational Foundation. If your company has a matching gift policy, please contact your Human Resources department to obtain your matching gift form.
PledgesPledges allow donors to promise a gift and make payments over time, which sometimes enables contributors to give more generously than otherwise possible. Payments can be made using cash, credit cards, securities, or other kinds of assets, over a period of up to five years.
SecuritiesDonations of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) can provide substantial benefit in the form of relief from capital gains taxes.
Gifts-in-KindGifts-in-Kind are items of tangible personal property or other physical assets including artwork, books, equipment, specialized instruments, services and other items of value.  Gifts are reviewed with special care to ensure their usefulness to the college.
Real EstateGifts of real property, including land, farms, personal residences, and rental or commercial property, can benefit the college while providing relief from capital gains taxes and eliminating property expenses.
Life InsuranceA gift of life insurance is an excellent way to make a gift in support of PVCC. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy to the PVCC Educational Foundation.
