Online Gifts

Giving to Moravian University 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 ( rather than using our online form.


Checks may be sent to:
Department of Development & Alumni Engagement
Moravian University
1200 Main Street
Bethlehem, PA 18018

Credit Cards

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.

Donor Advised Funds

To make a gift from your Donor Advised Fund (DAF), please click the link and enter the name of the institution where your DAF is held. This will direct you to a login page.

Matching Gifts

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.

Gifts of Stock

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.

Electronic Transfers of Shares of Publicly Traded Stock and Mutual Funds

Shares of publicly traded companies and mutual funds may be transferred electronically to Moravian University.

Make a gift of securities

You are entitled to a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities. This value is based on the average of the high and low price on the date of transfer. You will receive an acknowledgment letter from Moravian University for the value of your gift.

Gifts In-Kind or Gifts of Property/Real Estate

Moravian University welcomes in-kind gifts or gifts of real estate or other property; however, these gifts must fit within the stated mission of the University. 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.

For more information, contact your Gift Officer or the Department of Development & Alumni Engagement.

Give Over Time

Give over time to join in lighting the way through recurring gifts.

Automatic Deduction

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.

Payroll Deduction

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 University 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.
