    Planned Giving - The Regency Foundation

    The Regency Foundation, a non-profit founded by the University, helps you to wisely steward your finances, partnering with you to reach your goals for your family’s future and for charitable giving to Cairn. Opportunities to give through your estate are many, including life insurance policies, trusts, annuities, and wills.

  • Stocks, Securities, and Real Estate

    By giving stock and securities, you can make your investment go even further.

    Many donors prefer to make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or exchange-traded funds because it can have a large impact on our mission while maximizing potential tax benefits by avoiding paying tax on capital gains.

    If you would like to transfer your appreciated assets you can:
    •  Use our online tool to walk you through the process in less than 5 minutes; or
    Access our transfer information and work directly with your broker to transfer your stocks.

    Real estate is another gift that can yield substantial benefits to both donors and the University. The Development team can help you navigate this process.

  • Qualified Charitable Distribution

    If you are 72 or older and have an IRA, you are required to take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA each year! You can make a gift to Cairn University directly from your IRA called a Qualified Charitable Distribution. The gift is tax-free and is the smartest way to give!
    Donate now in order for your gift to qualify toward your 2022 RMD.
