IRA rollover

If you are 70 ½ years of age or older and have a traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you can make an immediate impact at Earlham through an IRA Charitable Rollover Gift. An IRA Charitable Rollover Gift allows you to make a gift to the College, satisfy part or all of your annual required minimum distribution from your IRA, and exclude part or all of that distribution from your taxable gross income, thereby reducing your tax liability.

Memorial and honorary gifts

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Earlham, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

Planned giving

Planned gifts are among the most meaningful to make and to receive. Not only do they provide important support for Earlham, but they can also offer considerable tax advantages to you and can be surprisingly easy to set up.
