You can support the KU Foundation through the SECA campaign.  The State Employee Appeal (SECA) Fund Drive was established in 1977 as the only charitable campaign allowed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in its state offices.  The KU Foundation is now listed as one of the participating non-profit agencies.  The SECA campaign will launch this fall.

Qualified Charitable Distribution from an IRA

If you are 70 ½ years of age or older, you are eligible to gift some or all of your required minimum distribution up to $100,000 to charity. This allows donors to minimize their adjusted gross income. Please consult with your tax advisor regarding your specific giving plans.


To make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) to the Kutztown University Foundation from your IRA, please contact your IRA administrator.

Keep in mind:

  • Donor must be at least 70 ½ years of age when the gift is made;
  • Transfer must be made directly from the IRA administrator to Kutztown University;
  • Gifts from the IRA cannot exceed $100,000 per person ($200,000 for a couple) in a given year;
  • Gifts can only be outright gifts (may not fund a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust);
  • No goods and services can be given in exchange; and
  • Gifts cannot be made to a donor advised fund, a supporting organization, or a private foundation.
  • Checks sent by your plan administrator directly to the University must be postmarked by December 31.

Temporary Universal Charitable Deduction

The CARES Act allows taxpayers to take a one-time deduction of up to $300 for gifts made to charitable organizations on their 2020 federal tax return. The deduction is ONLY for gifts of cash made in calendar year 2020 and does not cover other types of gifts or contributions made to donor-advised funds or private foundations. Please consult with your tax advisor regarding the tax law's impact on your specific giving plans.

Give Appreciated Securities

There may be significant tax benefits to giving stock or mutual funds to Kutztown University, particularly if significant capital gains have accumulated.  Your broker can complete an electronic transfer of stock or mutual funds to the KU Foundation's account at US Bank.  This type of transfer is done via the Depository Trust Company (DTC) system.  

The instructions are as follows:
