Donor FAQ

Is my gift tax deductible?

Yes. You will receive a gift receipt to assist you in your record keeping. Please note that if you contribute to attend an event, or receive material goods for your gift, only the donated part of the gift is tax deductible. The fair market value of any goods or services you receive in return must be excluded under IRS guidelines.

Are credit cards accepted for payment?

For your convenience, Excelsior College accepts MasterCard, VISA, Discover and American Express.

Are there other forms of payment?

You can mail a check or money order to:
Excelsior College, 7 Columbia Circle, Albany, NY 12203.
Please indicate if you would like your donation to go to the Annual Fund or Endowment.

May I give in installments?

Yes. Excelsior offers automatic credit card or bank deductions (EFT), which give you the option of dividing your gift into regularly scheduled contributions. This convenient option helps decrease the College's administrative costs and enables your gift to have a more immediate impact on our students.

Will my company match my gift?

Each year, thousands of U.S companies match the philanthropic efforts of their employees, doubling or even tripling the impact of a single gift. A company's human resources office is the best source for information about corporate matching gift programs.
