How to Give
Considerations for Donors in 2020 - The CARES Act
Giving to Moravian College is simple, safe, and secure using our online portal:
If your mailing address is outside of the United States and you would like to make a gift, please contact Lisa Brand by phone: 610-861-1338 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org rather than using our online form.
Giving is easy with a recurring gift from your credit or debit card account. You choose the amount, frequency, and timing of your gift that fits your budget, as well as the fund or program that it will benefit. Recurring gifts have an immediate and consistent impact on our campus!
Alumni, friends, faculty, and staff can set up recurring gifts by visiting our online giving form and following the instructions.
Faculty and staff can also set up recurring gifts through payroll deduction. Your bi-weekly contributions (26 between July 1 and June 30) to the College and/or Seminary will be credited to the fund or program of your choice.
To enroll in payroll deduction, complete the Payroll Deduction Form [PDF, 44KB] and return it to Lisa Brand in the Department of Development & Alumni Engagement.
By establishing a recurring gift to Moravian College, you become a member of the JAC Pack — a group of loyal donors dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our students on a recurring basis.
Who is JAC? JAC is the leader of the JAC Pack and a thirteenth generation descendant of John Amos Comenius! He is committed to continuing his family’s legacy of “education for all.”
After you enroll in recurring giving, we will send you an acknowledgement letter and a receipt for your first gift. You will also receive two additional records of your contributions throughout the year: one at the end of the calendar year, and another at the end of Moravian’s fiscal year (June 30).
(26 total paychecks)

Other Ways to Give
In addition to making gifts online or through recurring gifts, you can make gifts to Moravian College in a variety of other ways.
Checks may be sent to:
Department of Development & Alumni Engagement
1200 Main Street
Bethlehem, PA 18018
In addition to making a credit card gift online, you can also make a gift by calling the Department of Development & Alumni Engagement at 1-800-429-9437. We accept MasterCard, Visa, AmEx, and Discover.
Thousands of companies and corporate foundations match gifts to non-profit institutions such as Moravian. Also, matching gifts are a great way to increase support of Moravian without additional out-of-pocket expense.
Matching gifts are a very important source of support for Moravian! You can double or even triple the value of your donation and enhance your total for gift club membership, by simply notifying your employer of your gift to Moravian. You may be eligible to submit matching gift claims from both your own and your spouse's employer for the same gift. Contact the human resources office at your employer, your spouse's employer, or even your former employer, if you are retired, to inquire about their matching gift program.
If you have owned a stock for more than 12 months and it has appreciated in value during that time, you would incur a capital gains tax by selling it. However, if you give that stock to Moravian as a gift, you avoid the capital gains tax and can also claim an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the gift up to an amount equal to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Any unused deduction may be carried forward for up to five years.

Moravian College welcomes in-kind gifts or gifts of real estate or other property; however, these gifts must fit within the stated mission of the College. Other considerations include whether the property is marketable; whether there are undue restrictions on the use, display, or sale of the property; and whether there are any carrying costs for the property.
