Ways of Giving


Thank you for your interest in making a gift to Kean University. In this rapidly changing world whose boundaries continue to widen, a commitment to education and improving the lives of others is crucial to ensuring a bright future. By investing in the future of our students and the education we can provide, you are making a profound difference.

Your gift helps to perpetuate our world-class education and provides scholarships, a personalized and, affordable education and the resources needed to make all this happen.  Simply put, your gift provides opportunity.  Please see our options below, and as always, you may give an unrestricted gift to be used for an area of greatest need, or you may designate your support to a specific program.

Gifts of cash

Include online giving by credit card, mail, automatic deductions from your bank account and more.

Gifts of stock or securities

Gifts of securities publicly traded and closely held stock and real estate, such as a residence or vacation home, entitle donors to significant charitable tax deductions.

Matching gifts

An easy way to double or even triple your donation to Kean University is to determine if your employer has a matching gift program. Simply obtain a matching gift form from your employer, fill it out and send it to the Kean University Foundation office with your gift.

Planned gifts

Make a difference for the future. By making a bequest to the University in your will, trust or estate plan, you can choose to make a gift that benefits Kean as well as your personal finances. Other types of planned gifts include naming the University as the beneficiary (or contingent beneficiary) on a life insurance policy, IRA or other retirement fund, such as 401(k); or through a charitable gift annuity, unitrust or life estate gift. No matter how you choose to give, our planned giving staff can help guide you through the process and help you fulfill your philanthropic needs.

Gifts of property

The University accepts gifts of real estate including personal residences, second homes, farms, commercial or income property and land that offer a wide variety of tax and other benefits. Gifts of real estate can provide an opportunity for charitable giving while reducing taxes.

Whether you are considering your first gift to Kean University, give faithfully year-in and year-out or want to make a significant gift of your assets, our Development Team would be happy to help you create a gift that meets your desires as a donor and provides a better future for Kean.
