Automatic Monthly Payments

Giving Electronically Monthly is a convenient and secure way to give to Georgetown College. Giving a little each month can make a huge difference by the end of the year. It's easier on your wallet and budget than a single large donation.

Here's how it works: Use our online payment system and set up your monthly deduction using your credit or debit card. 

1. Online payment through your bank—If you pay your monthly bills online, just add Georgetown College as one of your payees and notify the advancement office so only one receipt will be sent to you at the end of the year.

2. Checks We welcome checks made out to Georgetown College and sent to the address below.

Office of Advancement
Georgetown College
400 E. College St.
Georgetown, KY 40324

You may also drop checks off in person Monday-Friday until 5 p.m. in the Office of Advancement on the first floor of Giddings Hall. Be sure to designate your gift to the "Loyalty Fund" or other purposes on the memo line.

Stock Gifts

Donations of stock are credited to the donor on the date the stock is received by the College and are to be entered as a gift at that day’s value. The Business Office has the challenge to sell the stock as soon as possible to guarantee it is counted in the appropriate fiscal year. The donor credit for the gift is not affected by the actual selling price of the stock.

Planned Giving

In addition to outright giving, “planned giving” is an exciting way to fulfill philanthropic goals, because a “planned gift” provides not only a gift in support of Georgetown College but also multiple financial and tax benefits to the donor and his or her family. For example, a donor may transfer cash or property to Georgetown and, in return, receive fixed, lifetime income payments, provide fixed, lifetime income payments to a family member or friend, and enjoy a sizeable income tax deduction. After the death of the donor(s), any remaining gift value will be used to benefit Georgetown College.

The above example is just one type of planned gift. However, there are many more types of planned gifts available to Georgetown supporters, which are summarized below. Similar to outright gifts, planned gifts can also be designated to benefit a particular area or program.

Alternatively, planned gifts can be undesignated to assist with the College’s greatest opportunities and needs.

The right type of planned gift will depend on a donor’s personal situation, needs, and objectives. Accordingly, Georgetown College staff are committed to helping you discover the best gift planning solution that achieves your financial and charitable giving goals.
