New College’s greatest need is for a strong endowment to help sustain its outstanding academic performance. An endowment fund requires that the principal be maintained intact in perpetuity and invested to create a source of income for New College. Donors may set up an endowment to fund a specific interest or monies may go into a general unrestricted endowment fund.
Restricted endowments are also needed for scholarships, named faculty chairs, and student research and travel funds. Endowments are essential to ensure New College remains one of the country’s finest, most affordable and distinctive undergraduate colleges.
There has long been a tradition of endowing named book funds at college and university libraries, both public and private. New College has its own tradition of creating endowed book funds. These funds not only support the purchase of books and electronic resources for the Library’s general collection, but may also support the acquisition of numerous other items for special collections.
As the Honors College for Florida, New College is committed to providing access to rigorous academics where students are part of an intellectual community that inspires and challenges them to pursue their interests in depth and design their area of concentration.
Gifts of stock and other appreciated securities provide the same tax deduction as if you had given cash, but use stocks or bonds that cost you less than they are current worth. Your deduction is based on the current market value of your securities, but you incur no capital gains liability when transferring them to the New College Foundation.
Gifts of open land, a home up north or income-producing commercial or residential properties can bring great benefits to New College. You can give real estate outright, transfer it in a part sale-part gift arrangement or use it to fund a life-income gift. You can also make a gift of your current home while retaining the right to continue living there.
Do you own a collection of rare books, antiques, valuable jewelry, fine artwork or equipment that you no longer wish to maintain? Consider giving these assets to the New College Foundation. (Note, there are particular IRS requirements to meet before you can deduct a gift of appreciated tangible assets. The Foundation also reviews each gift proposal carefully to ensure we can put it to good use in benefiting the College.)
