Credit Card 

You can make a gift today through your Visa, American Express, Discover or MasterCard. Your donation can post immediately or be divided into installment payments. Call 919-515-7827 and a staff member will process your gift.


Cash gifts are the easiest to value for tax purposes and for a donor to transfer by check or credit card to NC State University or one of its affiliated foundations. If you would like to make a cash gift, we accept currency, money orders, bank drafts and bank wires. We also welcome your check made payable to the Annual Giving for NCSU and mailed to the following:

  • Gifts and Records Management
    • NC State University
    • Campus Box 7474
    • Raleigh, NC 27695-7474

Give Through Payroll Deduction 

NC State faculty and staff can make a monthly contribution to NC State to the area of their choice via payroll deduction. Visit the NC State Employee Payroll Deduction Portal to start a new deduction or manage your existing deduction. Payroll deduction can also be managed via paper form.

Gifts of Securities 

Gifts of securities may allow for tax benefits for the donor by bypassing capital gains taxes and providing an income tax deduction. Gifts of appreciated securities held for more than a year are generally deductible at market value, regardless of the purchase price.

When making a gift of securities to NC State, it is important you notify us in advance of making the transfer. This will help us ensure proper crediting and acknowledgment takes place. If you are interested in making a gift of securities, contact Gifts & Records at or 919-515-7827 for further instructions.

Outright Gifts

  • Real estate including personal residences, farms, undeveloped land and commercial properties.
  • Gifts-in-kind of tangible property such as works of art, equipment, or supplies.
  • Honorary or memorial gifts named after individuals including scholarships, faculty chairs and professorships.

New E-Receipt Policy

In an effort to increase efficiency and implement a digital-first approach, Advancement Services is expanding its e-receipt efforts.

Everyone who gives to NC State via the online giving page currently receives an email receipt. Beginning March 1, 2021, gifts made via other tenders beyond the online giving page will also qualify for an email receipt.

Donors with an active email address on file will now receive an e-receipt for the following types of gifts/pledge payments:

  • Cash/checks
  • EFT/ACH/wires
  • Gift-in-kind
  • Credit cards

Fully implementing e-receipts will allow University Advancement to save resources by reducing costs for stationary and postage. This process will also allow for the expedited delivery of receipts to NC State’s generous donors.

To ensure that your e-receipt preferences are recorded, please visit and manage your receipt-delivery options. You may also contact the Advancement Services Helpdesk at if you have any additional questions.
