Types of Gifts
Investing in the Future
Charitable gifts of all types and sizes matter to us at Marshall B. Ketchum University. By donating on a regular basis, you provide a strong foundation for the development of our individual college programs and university initiatives. Gifts to MBKU are tax deductible, and most contributions may be designated to a particular effort at any of our three colleges, our two health centers or to any of the university priorities highlighted below.
Unrestricted support for the greatest needs of the university. Donors receive annual recognition credit in thanks for their enduring support.
Special named endowed accounts that are invested and generate income in perpetuity to fund the donor’s specified designation. Endowed funds require a minimum $25,000 investment (or $5,000 annually over five years); a mandatory three-year growth period to ensure fund stability; and are spent in accordance with university policy, currently at a rate of 5% annually.
Grateful Patient Gifts
Gifts made to any clinical or academic program in honor of an MBKU caregiver. Caregivers receive personal recognition for the high-level of care provided.
Gifts made all at once or pledged over time to fund capital initiatives on campus or in our clinical locations. Naming gifts begin at $5,000 and increase according to size, use and location of the room or space to be named; opportunities are limited. Please contact University Advancement to learn more.
Legacy gifts—from bequest intentions and beneficiary designations to charitable gift annuities, charitable trusts and gifts of real estate—that make an enormous and lasting impact at MBKU. For more information visit our Ketchum Legacy website.
Award & Scholarship Gifts
Gifts made to new and existing awards and scholarships that are both endowed and established for immediate use according to the donor’s individual request.
Gifts made to upgrade or otherwise enhance technological initiatives at Ketchum University. All three colleges have specific as well as shared needs, including the university simulation center, classroom media upgrades and clinic equipment needs.
