Please send gifts to:

Shawnda Hill
Business Officer
NC State Engineering Foundation
Campus Box 7901
Raleigh, NC 27695

Please make checks payable to “NC State Engineering Foundation.” Also, be sure to include a note with your check that states the purpose of your gift or write in the memo line. The gift can then be easily recorded and you will be issued a receipt from the University for your tax records.

Gifts of Securities

Using appreciated securities (stocks and bonds) is a popular method of making a gift to the NC State Engineering Foundation. A gift of appreciated securities provides a double tax savings: you can deduct the average of the high/low value of the securities on the date of the gift and avoid the capital gain tax on the appreciation. Please follow the guidelines here to send a gift of a security. Early planning is strongly encouraged.

Please remember, the securities must be received in one of the College’s brokerage accounts with Charles Schwab & Co., Inc., by December 31 in order to be deductible in 2018.

If you hold securities in certificate form, or if you have other questions, please contact the Office of Advancement Services: phone: 919.515.7827, fax: 919.513.2406, or email:
