Ways to Give


You can make your gift online now by credit card using our secure online giving website.


Make your check payable to the MTSU Foundation and mail it to:

Office of Development
MTSU P.O. Box 109
Murfreesboro, TN 37132

Be sure to note the purpose, or designation, of your gift on the memo line of your check or include a brief note. Gifts without instructions will be placed in the Annual Fund account.

Credit Cards and Electronic Fund Transfer

A one-time or recurring bank draft or gift using your credit card can be set up by calling 615-898-5006.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Many companies will match the gifts of their employees to qualifying charities. Some double or triple the amount of your gift. Your company’s Human Resources Department can provide details and the matching gift form to include with your check.


Your gift of appreciated stock is tax-deductible and helps you avoid long-term capital gains tax. It is typically to your advantage to transfer appreciated securities to the MTSU Foundation directly rather than selling them and giving cash. Please contact our office at 615-898-5006 for instructions on making this transfer. Even if you have given stock previously, please notify our office so that your stock is transferred to the appropriate designation, and you receive proper tax credit.

Real Estate

The MTSU Foundation accepts gifts of real estate, including private residences, farms, commercial property, and land. Each gift is unique, and we encourage you to discuss your options with our office as well as your personal financial or tax advisor since a variety of tax benefits may be available.

Gifts in Kind

Works of art, rare books, equipment, and other tangible personal property can help support education at MTSU. Such gifts must be appraised by an outside expert if the value is more than $5,000.00, or the donor must provide a documented receipt value.

Planned or Deferred Gifts

Planned or deferred gifts from individuals can include will bequests, life insurance policies or proceeds, or gifts using other charitable estate planning vehicles such as trusts or charitable gift annuities.
