What to Give

Make a Difference Through Giving

Contact Christine Tebes today to discuss how the following giving options might work for you:

  • Cash - Making a gift of cash is as simple as writing a check payable to "Carnegie Mellon University" or authorizing a charge from your credit or debit card.
  • Securities - Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of one year and a day. Making a gift of securities offers you the chance to help Carnegie Mellon while realizing many important benefits for yourself. Download our securities gift form (.pdf) today.
  • Retirement Plan Assets - Did you know that you can name Carnegie Mellon as a beneficiary of your IRA or pension fund?
  • Real Estate - It is possible to make a gift of your primary or secondary home. Real estate can be used as either an outright gift or as a way to fund a trust that provides you with income for life.
  • Life Insurance - Some alumni have made Carnegie Mellon "sole owner and beneficiary" of life insurance policies that are no longer needed.
