Support Wabash Students this Holiday Season

Your gifts allow students to take their own Giant Steps

Over the last year, alumni and friends have added to the momentum of the Giant Steps Campaign and impacted the lives of our faculty and students with their generous gifts. You can take your own Giant Step when you make a gift to support Wabash students this holiday season.

RECURRING GIFTS ARE BUDGET FRIENDLY

Take your own Giant Step for Wabash students by making a sustaining gift. Setting up monthly, quarterly, or even annual recurring gifts makes it easy and budget-friendly to support Wabash College. 

DOUBLE YOUR GIFT

Take just a few minutes to double or even triple the impact of your gift. Visit our Matching Gift database to find out if your company will match your gift to Wabash. Some will even match gifts by retirees, spouses, or partners of employees. What’s even better is that most companies with these programs will match donations made at any point during the last year

USING YOUR TRADITIONAL IRA FOR GIVING

Tax legislation now allows those who are 70 ½ or older to give up to $100K per year to Wabash through their Traditional IRA. If you are taking required minimum distributions (RMDs) into your income, you can take advantage of the IRA Rollover to satisfy in part or in whole your RMD. For more information, click on Charitable IRA FAQ’s and if you want to pursue a rollover gift, please click on Rollover Instructions

INDIANA RESIDENTS: TAKE ADVANTAGE OF STATE TAX CREDITS WHEN GIVING TO WABASH

If you file an Indiana income tax return, the state will credit up to 50% of your gift to Wabash against your state income taxes. Individual filers receive $100 credit for the first $200 contributed to Wabash, while joint filers receive $200 credit for the first $400 contributed to the College.

USE AMAZON SMILE WHEN SHOPPING ONLINE

If you are buying gifts online this holiday season, think about using Amazon Smile—which donates 0.5% of eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. You can select Wabash for your charity, and although this will not provide you with any personal giving credit, you can know that you are making an impact even while you shop.
