Faculty and Staff Campaigns

Annually, faculty and staff are asked to contribute to the University. Their participation and support provide a concrete expression of their belief in the University. A high level of participation from faculty and staff members demonstrates their commitment to the University which has a positive impact on contributions from corporations, foundations and the community.

Gifts-in-Kind

Gifts-in-kind are non-cash gifts such as goods and services. Examples of this type of gift include building materials, architectural services, product inventory and equipment. The donor is responsible for assessing the value of their gift-in-kind, as well as providing the necessary IRS 8283 form.

Graduate Walk of Honor

Troy University is very excited to offer you an opportunity to purchase a personalized engraved brick to be set on the Graduate Walk of Honor on the Troy, Alabama, campus. The graduate’s name will be permanently engraved and placed in their graduation class from 2000 to current. What a wonderful way to leave a permanent remembrance of this important milestone in one's life!

Restricted Gifts

Many donors restrict their gifts to an academic program, college, department or educational project of their choice. These restricted gifts are applied to the appropriate accounts and used as the donor specifies. Troy University always honors the donors gift request. 

Sustained Giving

Endowments

An endowed scholarship can be established by a contribution of $25,000 or more. Many friends and alumni make contributions to the Troy University Foundation in memory or honor of a family member or a friend through the establishment of an endowed scholarship. This endowment is perpetual, as only the income is used to award scholarships each year. An endowed scholarship is an excellent way to honor someone in perpetuity.

Legacy Gifts

A legacy gift is the process through which a gift is pledged but may be completely or partially deferred until sometime in the future. Legacy gifts can be made by bequests through a will, life insurance policy or by establishing a charitable remainder trust. 

Corporation and Foundation Support

Corporation and foundation support is an important resource for higher education. They can provide funds for facilities, special programs, seminars and research projects, equipment, scholarships and they can encourage their employees to give through their matching gift programs.

Matching Gifts

Many employers match employee gifts to higher education. Some companies match dollar-for-dollar, others match two-for-one and some even match three-for-one. Employees can check with their personnel office to see if the company will match their gift. If the company matches gifts, a matching gift application should be completed and mailed with the donor’s gift.
