Monthly Giving

Monthly giving is an easy way to contribute and make a difference over time. For example, a gift of $83 per month over 12 months qualifies a donor to become a member of the Dean's Circle Giving Society. To begin your monthly giving, please complete and print the School of Law Gift Form and mail with your credit card information or check (made payable to USC Foundations) to the following address.

Multi-year Pledges

Extended over a period of years, a pledge helps you make a larger gift than you might have thought possible. For example, a gift of $83 per month paid over five years amounts to a gift of $5,000! If you are interested in setting up a pledge, please contact Travis Tester.

Electronic Funds Transfer

Electronic funds transfer deductions provide you with the opportunity to continually support the University of South Carolina. With your authorization, we will automatically debit your checking or savings account (on or about the 15th of each month) in the amount you designate. At all times, you will maintain control of this electronic process. Other important things to know about electronic funds transfers include:

  • Electronic funds transfers are established for continuous giving, and we cannot offer this method of giving for one-time gifts.
  • Once the authorization form is completed and returned with appropriate documentation, the first gift will be deducted within 30 to 45 days.
  • There is a minimum gift amount of $10 per month.
  • Notice to discontinue your electronic funds transfer will be effective 30 days after the Notification to Discontinue Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization form is received in our office.

Please print the EFT authorization form [pdf] and mail it with a voided check to:

University of South Carolina
Office of Gift Processing
1600 Hampton Street, Suite 736
Columbia, SC 29208

Matching Gifts

Many employers have matching gift programs that will increase your gift. Check to see if your company or organization (or your spouse’s organization) has a matching gift policy. Also, please contact your employer's matching gift coordinator and send the required forms along with your gift designating the USC School of Law.

Stock and Securities

A contribution of long-term appreciated securities, either publicly traded or from a closely held company, may provide greater tax advantages than a cash gift. You may deduct the current fair market value as a charitable gift and avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation. Contact Travis Tester to learn more.

You may invest in the School of Law through a bequest, life insurance or other estate planning strategies that meet your priorities and fund initiatives that are most important to you. Contact Travis Tester to learn more.
