1. Gift Agreement
We provide gift agreements for all gifts and pledges of $25,000 or more. Agreements outline the purpose, form, schedule and administration of gifts. For smaller gifts, donors may document their preferences with pledge cards, letters or notes on their checks.
2. Convert To Cash
Non-cash gifts (securities or real estate) require special processing. The Foundation converts these gifts to cash.
3. Deposit In Account
Every gift goes into an endowed or non-endowed operational account as specified by the donor. The Foundation disburses funds from accounts as defined by donors’ preferences.
4. Send Receipt
We mail a receipt for every gift. Receipts provide donors with proof of their contribution. If you have a question about a receipt, contact Ann Lovett ’81 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. Apply Applicable Fees
Please note: These fees do not affect the portion of your donation considered a charitable donation for IRS receipting and A&M giving totals.
6. Disburse to Texas A&M
If the gift is non-endowed, the Foundation disburses the entire gift as designated by the donor and when requested by the university. If the gift is endowed, we invest it until it has generated enough proceeds to fund the stipend and the benefiting university office requests a disbursement.
