Ways to give

Our students benefit from all styles of giving. How will you support Lynn?

From one-time gifts to planned giving, there are as many giving options as there are great reasons to support Lynn University. Your gift can be tailored to reflect your lifestyle, financial considerations, personal goals and priorities.

Annual gifts

Annual gifts provide a vital source of yearly revenue for university operations. Received and spent in the same year, these gifts go to work immediately to provide for Lynn’s greatest needs.

Endowments

Ensure your gift functions in perpetuity and provides a long-term source of income for Lynn. The principal amount is never spent. Instead, it is invested to produce interest that generates sustainable income.

Planned gifts

Lynn’s future is a great investment. With planned giving, you provide long-lasting support for Lynn with tax and income benefits for you.

Gifts of stock

Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds or other securities allow you to make a substantial gift at minimal cost.

Matching gifts 

If your employer has a matching gift program, you may be able to double—or even triple—your contribution to Lynn University. 

One-time gifts

Make a one-time donation to the designation of your choice. Every gift makes a difference to our students.

Payroll deductions

Lynn employees can make their gifts to the university through electronic payroll deduction.

Recurring gifts

Sustaining monthly gifts help to fund all aspects of a Lynn education. With your approval, we’ll automatically process your credit card for the donation amounts on the dates that you specify.

The Christine Gianacaci Journey of Hope Award granted me the opportunity to raise community awareness in the Dominican Republic. I fed orphans and helped build a basketball court for an impoverished village.”

Does your employer have a matching gift program?

These companies match the charitable contributions their employees make to higher education institutions. Some companies will also match gifts made by retirees, spouses of employees or non-employees who serve on their corporate board of directors. Some even make a cash gift to match an employee's volunteer hours served at Lynn University. Talk to your human resources department today about how to initiate your matching gift.

An endowment serves as a permanent tribute to the donor or honoree, providing for future generations and continuing the tradition of helping those in need. A named endowment fund begins with a minimum gift of $50,000.

Lynn is seeking investments in naming or endowment opportunities with the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business and Management and Conservatory of Music. Endowment gifts also fund numerous scholarships for deserving students. 

If you are interesting in establishing a Lynn University endowment, please contact Greg Malfitano, senior vice president for development and administration, at 561-237-7277.

You will receive a tax deduction based on the value of the security on the date of the gift. With long-term appreciated securities (those held longer than 12 months), you will receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair-market value of your gift and avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation.

If you wish to donate securities to Lynn, please contact Gerry Bald.
