How to Make a Gift

Your Gift, Your Choice

There are many ways to demonstrate your support for the School of Business. You choose when, how much, and where to give—with several ways in which you can make your commitment and ongoing support known. Gifts of any and all amounts go a long way in supporting the School of Business.

Donate Online: Make a gift or establish a recurring pledge online via credit card at giving.gmu.edu.

Write a Check: Mail a check, made payable to George Mason University Foundation Inc., to 4400 University Drive, MS 6E11, Fairfax, VA 22030.

Build a Partnership with Corporate Giving: Mason offers businesses access to talent, expertise, and infrastructure—striving to create partnerships that provide industry leaders with high-demand resources that enrich the student experience and promote regional economic development.

Extend Your Support with Match Giving: Many corporations generously match charitable contributions made by current or retired employees and board members. Use our online matching gift database to see if your company participates.

Add Value through Gifts of Stock: Lock in gains for your individual stock portfolio by making a charitable gift of appreciated stock. The charitable donation is tax-deductible, and you avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciated asset.

Provide a Gift of Real Estate: Gifts of real estate and tangible personal property may be accepted at the discretion of the George Mason University Foundation Inc. and in accordance with IRS regulations.

Create a Planned Gift: Legacy gifts represent sustainability for key academic and research programs as well as scholarship funds to help attract and retain students. These gifts provide benefits to future generations of Mason students—and to you and your heirs.

You can remember the School of Business in your estate plan in a variety of ways. How it works:

  • Give a specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate through your will or trust
  • Leave a specific asset, such as artwork, jewelry, or real estate
  • Name the School of Business as a residual beneficiary of your estate so that the school receives the remainder after all other bequests have been satisfied
  • Designate the School of Business as a sole or partial beneficiary of a retirement plan, such as a 401(k) or IRA
  • Recommend that the School of Business be considered as a successor beneficiary of your donor-advised fund
  • Consider an income-retained arrangement that would benefit you now and the School of Business later
