Electronic Funds Transfer

Fraters and friends can make a monthly gift to TKE Foundation (TKEF) without ever having to write another check, through an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Through EFT you can spread your annual support over the course of a year by authorizing your bank to transfer a predetermined amount to TKE Foundation each month. By making your gift through an EFT, you also help the University to reduce the amount of paper, time, and costs in postage used to send you annual appeals.

To implement an EFT to Teke, simply fill out the EFT Form (PDF) and send it in with a voided check to:

TKE Foundation
7439 Woodland Drive, Suite 100
Indianapolis, IN 46278

Or make a recurring EFT gift to the TKE Foundation through our secure online portal.

Matching Gifts

Many companies have established matching gift programs whereby they will match any gift made by an employee to a qualified charitable organization. The impact of your gift to TKE may be doubled or possibly tripled!,

To find out if your employer has such a program, visit the following link: https://www.matchinggifts.com/rit/.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it with your gift. We will do the rest. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Stocks And Securities

Making gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds or exchange-traded funds is one of the most tax-effective ways to support TKE while having an immediate impact on our mission.

Many donors prefer these gifts to maximize potential tax benefits and avoid paying capital gains tax.

A gift of stock is valued for tax purposes on the date of transfer. The fair market value of gifts of long-term, capital gains securities or real estate is a deductible up to 30% of a donor's adjusted gross income. Any amount in excess may be carried forward for five years.

Our online stock gift tool makes it easier to make a gift of appreciated securities. Complete your stock gift in less than 10 minutes through our partnership with FreeWill or transfer securities using the information below.
