Ways to Give
To mail your gift, print the Letter of Intent form [pdf] to include with your check, credit card details or money order. Checks should be made payable to:
USC-Business Partnership Foundation
Darla Moore School of Business
University of South Carolina
1014 Greene St.

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 contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Many employers have matching gift programs that could double or triple your gift. Check to see if your company or 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-Business Partnership Foundation.
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 $25 per month paid over five years amounts to a gift of $1,500.
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 the Office of Development to learn more.
You may invest in the Moore School through life insurance, a bequest or other estate planning strategies that meet your priorities and fund initiatives that are most important to you. Contact the Office of Development to learn more.
