Making a planned gift may seem like a complex process, but with the help of our office and your financial advisor you can be receiving benefits for life in a short period of time.

Using various financial instruments, such as a charitable remainder trust, life insurance, or a charitable gift annuity, gift planning can benefit you, your beneficiaries, and the College. To learn more about the different types of planned gifts and their respective benefits, visit our gift legacy website at or contact us at (800) 722-2586, option 3, option 4.

Your gift can be adapted to meet your needs.

Gifts of Securities

A gift of appreciated securities is a quick and easy way to make a contribution to Palmer College. Such a gift can help you diversify your assets and minimize capital gains taxes. Please consult your financial advisor when making any gift of securities.

Gifts of Personal Property

Gifts of personal property, such as artwork, equipment, and rare books, are a creative way to make a gift to Palmer College. We are happy to discuss gifts that help the College meet its mission while providing you with a tax deduction.

Call the Development Office at (800) 722-2586, option 3, option 4 to make a gift of personal property. 

Gifts of Stocks

If you are like most individuals, the value of your stock and other investments has grown over the years. Perhaps you are entering your retirement years and wondering how you can turn your highly appreciated asset into extra income.

You may also be concerned about the mounting capital gains taxes due. If you sell your stock in today’s market, you will forfeit a portion of the proceeds to taxes and that means less cash for you. In short, you need a way to sell your stock and avoid capital gains.

If you identify with either of these situations, the solution is a charitable stock plan. A variety of charitable plans can help you achieve your goals for tax savings and even provide income.

Gift Annuity for Stock

You may transfer your stock to fund a charitable gift annuity that will avoid capital gains tax and pay you fixed income for life. The rates can be quite high depending on your age and a part of your income stream may even be tax-free! You will receive an income tax deduction for your gift in the year you set up the annuity. At the end of your life, you have the satisfaction of knowing the remaining value is going to help benefit future generations of chiropractic students at Palmer College.

Unitrust and Sale of Stock

By giving your stock to fund a unitrust you can avoid capital gains tax because the trust will sell your stock tax free and then invest the proceeds to provide you with income for life. You will receive a charitable income tax deduction in the year the trust is established and benefit from tax savings that could be spread out over a number of years. The students at Palmer College will benefit from the future remaining trust value.

Gifts in Memory and Celebration

Is there someone in your life you want to remember and celebrate? A contribution of any amount can be made to express your feelings for another and the College will notify the appropriate individual or family of your gift.

Call the Development Office at (800) 722-2586, option 3, option 4 to make a memorial or celebratory gift today.

Payroll Deductions

For Palmer employees only

Gifts made by payroll deduction are simple. You can give now by contacting the Development Office at extension 5433.

Investing in the Future

If your interest is in the future of chiropractic take a look at our Endowment Fund. While you can designate a fund of your own with a gift of $50,000, your gift to the Unrestricted Endowment Fund will have the greatest impact. Why? Because, with your help, we can be ready today to meet any needs that arise tomorrow.
