Gifts of Cash

Gifts of Cash

A cash gift is the most straightforward and common way to support the Division of the Biological Sciences and the Pritzker School of Medicine. Cash gifts are deductible for federal income tax purposes up to a limit of 50 percent of your adjusted gross income if you itemize deductions. To the extent your cash gifts in a single year exceed this limit, you may carry over the excess for up to five additional years.

Cash gifts may be pledged for payment over a period of years. To be officially recorded, pledges should be made either in writing or by means of a pledge card.
