Is my payment secure?
Yes! All payments will be processed using a secure online giving form. The information collected during Reaching New Heights will be used only by James Madison University.
Can I make a gift by mail or phone?
Due to the tight time period of Reaching New Heights, only gifts made online or over the phone on February 19-24 will count toward our overall totals. If you would like to make a gift by phone, please call (855) 568-4483 from 8AM to 5PM any weekday and designate your gift for Reaching New Heights.
Will my gift be tax-deductible?
Yes, except for some athletics gifts, your gift is entirely tax deductible. You will receive an email confirmation that can serve as your receipt for tax purposes. Tax law does not allow a deduction on gifts to athletics used to receive ticket benefits. All gifts to athletics unrelated to these benefits are 100 percent tax-deductible. For more information regarding tax deductibility on your gift to JMU athletics, please call the JMU Duke Club at (540) 568-6461.
Can I ask my company to match my gift to Reaching New Heights?
Yes. You can double or even triple your gift! Hundreds of companies will match your donations to JMU (Your spouse's company may even qualify). Search for your employer or company name here.
Note: We are listed in most systems as James Madison University Foundation, Inc.
Can I make my gift anonymously?
Online gifts will NOT be anonymous. James Madison University will have access to relevant gift information such as name, address and email for receipting purposes. However, you may choose to hide your name and/or your donation amount on the Donor Wall.
If you have any additional questions concerning anonymity, please call our giving hotline at 855-568-4483.
