Foundation Giving Information

We appreciate your interest in supporting the KE Foundation and want to make the process as easy as possible. There are a number of ways to make a gift besides direct contributions.

Legacy Gifts

Making a gift in recognition of a loved one or a colleague is a lasting way to acknowledge and celebrate their life and accomplishments. Gifts can benefit the KE Foundation in general, support a specific program, or develop a named scholarship. Gifts can be a one-time contribution or to create an endowment. Contact the KE Office to discuss options and to complete the required form.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts from your employer enhance your donation to the KE Foundation. To determine if your employer has a matching program, simply go to your employer’s Human Resources contact and ask!

Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities or mutual funds to the KE Foundation can provide significant support for an area of your designation for the KE Foundation. Gifts of Securities may be used to support the educational grants, scholarships, establishment of an endowment, provide unrestricted support or other learning opportunities and initiatives. Contact the KE Office to determine the best course of action in making a securities gift.

Estate Planning

In-kind gifts are donations of goods or services that can be made either in a donor’s lifetime or as part of an estate. Once fair market value is established, the gift should be eligible for tax donation. Contact the KE Office to determine the best course of action in making an estate gift.
