  • Other Ways To Give

    There are many ways to support Ohio Dominican, including gifts of stocks and securities. Use the links below to discover how your generosity can make a difference at Ohio Dominican.

    Donate by Mail or Phone

    To make a gift by phone, please call us at (614) 251-4790. You can mail your check, payable to Ohio Dominican University, to the address at right. 

    In-Kind Gifts

    Ohio Dominican appreciates in-kind gifts such as works of art, equipment, musical instruments. The gifts must be evaluated by Ohio Dominican prior to donation. Please contact University Advancement at (614) 251-4790 or odfund@ohiodominican.edu.

    Matching Gifts 

    Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Through these programs, when an employee makes a donation, the company will match, or some times even double, the same amount, to the same charitable organization.

    Matching Gift Programs are a wonderful way for employees to make their charitable dollars stretch farther at no cost to themselves.

    Ask your company's human resources office for a matching gift form. You fill out a portion of the form and send it to Ohio Dominican with your gift and we will take care of the rest. 

    If you have any questions, contact University Advancement at (614) 251-4790 or odfund@ohiodominican.edu.

    Stock & Securities

    Donating Appreciated Securities to Ohio Dominican University 

    Gifts of appreciated securities which have been held for more than one year (in most cases) is a tax-wise way to make a difference at Ohio Dominican. 

    Donors making stock gifts are eligible to a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair-market value of the stock on the date it is gifted to ODU up to 30% of your adjusted gross income. 

    A capital gains tax is not due when the stock is transferred to Ohio Dominican.

    The value of all securities gifts is calculated as the “mean price” on the trade date of the gift into the ODU gift account.

    For Securities Held By Your Broker 

    If your broker or bank holds your securities, call your broker and tell him/her which securities you wish to donate to Ohio Dominican University. Most firms require written instructions.

    Other important to-do items:  

    On the same day you call your broker, please confirm your instructions in writing to your broker and the following:

    • Declare your desire to make a gift to Ohio Dominican University
    • Including the number of shares you are gifting to ODU
    • The name(s) of the stock(s)
    • The purpose for which you are designating your gift, i.e., augmenting our existing ODU endowment fund; we are creating a new endowment at ODU; we are making an Unrestricted gift to our ODU Fund.

    In your letter, include your broker’s phone number and send a copy of your letter to Ohio Dominican Advancement Office (see address below). 

    In order to give prompt and accurate credit for all stock/securities gifts received, it is important for Ohio Dominican to know the identity of its securities donors, especially those gifts which are received via electronic transfer. 

    Since it is difficult to obtain donor identity once the transaction has been processed, donors are requested to identify themselves when the DTC transfer instructions are executed.

    Step 1: Send us your unendorsed stock certificates by U.S. Mail, with a typed letter stating your name, address, and the designation of your gift to Ohio Dominican University.

    Step 2: In a separate envelope, please send us at the same address listed above, a signed stock power for each certificate, along with a copy of your letter. DO NOT write anything on the “stock power” other than your signature and the date.
