How to Give

The Many Ways that YOU Can Give Back

Currently, we are in the midst of the Invest in Excellence Campaign.  This $125 million campaign will allow us to continue the momentum and path of success that we have been on for the past few years. We ask you to Be a Part of Something Greater, we ask you to Invest in Excellence

There are many ways to support Trine University through your time, talent and treasure. Below are some of the many ways that you can support your Alma Mater. 

Make a Gift

Make a gift online or mail your gift to Trine University Office of Alumni and Development One University Avenue Angola, IN 46703.  Many employers offer matching gift programs that equal charitable contributions made by their employees. Search the matching gift database to see if your employer has a matching gift program.

Leave a Legacy

There are many different opportunities for Planned Giving: Bequests, Endowed Funds, Life Income Gifts, Life Insurance Gifts, Naming Opportunities and Retirement Plans Assets.

If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit Trine University and receive tax benefits in return. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income taxes on the money.

This law no longer has an expiration date so you are free to make annual gifts to our organization this year and well into the future.
