Ways to Help
You may wish to give a one-time gift, or you might want to pledge a specific amount and give over time (monthly or annually, for example). You also may give in honor or memory of someone special, or contribute anonymously by indicating that information on your gift form. When you give, be sure to designate which fund you wish to support.
- Camp Brosius General Fund (begins to work immediately for general operations, upkeep, equipment, and programs)
- Camp Brosius Endowment (investment earnings are made available for Camp Brosius use annually; gifts are invested in perpetuity)
To make a one-time gift, you may give online today, or print and return this form, along with your check made payable to the IU Foundation, to the the IU Foundation. In both instances, be sure to designate the appropriate camp fund for your gift.
You may contact Adam Van Zee to structure a longer-term family or cash contribution that is meaningful and affordable for you.
University Employees: If you are a university employee, you may contact Adam Van Zee for assistance with payroll deduction.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Visit the IU Foundation Matching Gift site to find out this easy for your employer to match your contribution.
You can support camp by transferring stock (consult your tax advisor to maximize charitable deductibility):
- You may physically deliver the endorsed stock certificate in person, or mail the endorsed stock certificate and the stock power to us in two separate envelopes.
- You may electronically deliver the stock by directing your stockbroker or banker to move the stock to our account. If you are considering a gift of stock to the IU Foundation for the benefit of Camp Brosius, please contact Judy Inlow, IU Foundation, email@example.com, 812/855-1368. Please also email Adam Van Zee to make sure camp administration is aware of your camp contribution.
Gifts in Your Will
Leaving a gift in your will to Camp Brosius can be as simple as providing this paragraph to your attorney:
“I give, devise, and bequeath the (sum of, percentage of, or residue of my estate) to Indiana University Foundation (Tax ID # 35-6018940), a not-for-profit corporation with principal offices located in Bloomington, Indiana, for the benefit of the School of Health & Human Sciences, IUPUI campus, to benefit Camp Brosius.”
Your attorney and school staff may assist you with additional language if needed. Be sure to notify Adam Van Zee so that your precise wishes are understood and fulfilled by camp when the gift is distributed.
For help with the language for your gift, call Brian Yeley, JD, at the IU Foundation, 800-558-8311, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Tax Benefits of Giving for Indiana Residents
Indiana taxpayers may take a tax credit of 50% of their gift to IU. For a joint return, the maximum credit is $200, based on gift of $400 or more. For a single return, the maximum credit is $100 (based on a gift of $200 or more). The payment of tuition, fees, or room and board are not charitable contributions and do not qualify for this credit.
After you make your gift to Camp Brosius, you will only need to complete one simple form—the Indiana CC-40. Attach this form to your Indiana income tax return for the tax year in which you made the gift.
You may obtain the Indiana CC-40 tax form along with all requirements and instructions online here from the State of Indiana’s website.
This form is for computing credit for contributions to colleges and universities located in Indiana. This schedule, or a statement showing the same information, must be attached to the contributor's income tax return.
Thanks again for all you do for Camp Brosius!
