Gifting Cash

The Power of a Simple Gift

One of the easiest and most common ways for you to support National University is with a gift of cash. Cash can be used to support an education for NU’s adult learners in the form of:

An outright gift

Making a cash gift by check, credit card, or money order today enables us to meet our most urgent needs and carry out our mission on a daily basis. One of the obvious benefits is that you’ll be able to see your generosity in action. Another benefit is that you will also receive a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.

A payable on death (POD) account

A POD bank account or certificate of deposit names one or more persons or charities as the beneficiary of all funds once you, the account owner, pass away. The beneficiary you name has no rights to the funds until after your lifetime. Until that time, you remain in control and are free to use the money in the bank account, change the beneficiary, or close the account.

There are many different ways to make cash donations as part of the gift types listed below.
