2020 Year-End Giving Information

Thank you for considering Trevecca Nazarene University as part of your charitable giving priorities. There are many ways to make a tax-deductible gift to Trevecca and it to be included in the *2020 tax year. If you any questions about these and other giving options, please call the Office of External Relations at (615) 248-1355. Phones will be monitored while University offices are closed December 18 through January 3. All phone messages will be returned promptly. You can also e-mail pcooning@trevecca.edu throughout the holiday period.

*This year (2020) has a unique opportunity for persons who itemize their taxes with the passage of the CARES Act. Donors can take a tax deduction of up to 100% of their adjusted gross income for contributions to qualifying charities, lifting the limits on charitable giving up from 60%. This tax break concludes at the end of 2020.

The mailing address is: Trevecca Nazarene University, Office of External Relations, 333 Murfreesboro Pike, Nashville TN 37210.

Required Minimum Distributions: If you are 70 ½ years old or older, it may be to your tax advantage to have the required minimum distribution (RMD) from your retirement account transferred directly to Trevecca.

Contact Don Hastings at 615-248-1436 for more information. *NOTE* RMD’s must be deposited into Trevecca’s account before the end of the calendar year so please give yourself enough time to meet that deadline.

Stock and SecuritiesThe IRS indicates that the donation credit is on the day the securities are in possession by the charity. Please keep this in mind and allow the needed business days’ processing when making your year-end stock or securities gift. If the stock is held in a brokerage account, please provide the following information for an electronic transfer to your broker:

Charles Schwab - new university broker

If this is the first time you make a stock gift to Trevecca, you will need to provide your broker with Trevecca’s employer ID which is 62-0497990.
