Give to DePaul

Thank you for giving to DePaul University.

Year-End Giving Considerations for Donors

Please note that DePaul University will be closed December 23- January 1. If you wish to make a year-end donation during that time please consider making that donation via our secure online form by clicking the green button labeled "Make a Gift Now" on this page. The Advancement Office will be staffed each day during the holiday break, except for December 24th, December 25th and January 1st. If, during the break, you have any gift-related inquiries or would you like to make your donation over the phone, please call (312) 362-8666 or email giving@depaul.edu.

The IRA charitable rollover provision has now been made permanent. This means that donors age 70-and-a-half and older are now able to contribute up to $100,000 annually from their IRA to DePaul University, tax-free. Plus, this gift counts toward your minimum required distribution. Additional details and restrictions:

  • The gift must come from your IRA-no other retirement plans qualify.
  • Although the money you contribute from your IRA is tax-free up to $100,000, you will not receive a charitable tax deduction.
  • To receive this special tax treatment, a new IRA gift must be distributed to DePaul directly by your IRA administrator-not from your IRA-then to you, and then to DePaul. Please contact your IRA administrator to begin this process.
  • IRA administrators do not always include the donor's name on the check. Please let us know in advance that you are making an IRA donation so that we can identify your gift and thank you properly.

Please note that the date provided on our gift receipts reflects the date the donation was processed and does not imply the date your gift was made. Determination of a gift date is the donor's decision. Please consult with your tax advisor and/or visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov for Tips on Year-End Giving.
