Is my gift tax-deductible?
Temple University (and thereby the Boyer College of Music and Dance) is exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(C)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, therefore your gift is tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law. Temple University has operated since 1884 and became established as a nonprofit charity in 1926. Our federal tax identification number is 23-1365971. You should consult your financial planner or tax adviser to determine the exact tax advantages of any gift you are considering. We provide a receipt for all gifts that can be used to claim a tax deduction.  If you need a copy of the receipt or need a receipt for your annual giving please call 215-926-2221.

Will I receive a tax receipt when I make my gift?
Yes, all donors receive an acknowledgement of their contribution that serves as an official tax receipt.

What is the Annual Fund and where does my donation go?
The Annual Fund is the most direct way for alumni, friends and family to support every effort at Boyer College. Donations made to the annual fund directly support the student learning experience by funding operating expenses, faculty support, library resources, special opportunities for students and more.

Where does the Boyer College need the most support?
With the increasing challenges of financing higher education, Temple University has identified scholarships as the current top giving priority. A new scholarship fund can be endowed with a minimum gift of $50,000, and there are many existing funds which would benefit from gifts of any amount.

I’d like my contribution to go to a particular program. How do I make sure that happens?
You can always indicate a specific purpose for your gift, such as a department’s operational budget or a named scholarship fund.  If you choose to make your contribution using our secure online giving form, indicate your designation by following the prompts. If you would like to send a check, please specify your designation in the memo line of the check.

I’d like to make a contribution in honor or memory of someone. What do I need to do?
Many donors choose to give in honor of a faculty member or graduate, or in memory of a loved one who believed in the power of music and/or dance.  If you choose to make your contribution using our secure online giving form, indicate who is being honored or memorialized by following the prompts. If you would like to send a check, please specify your designation in the memo line of the check.  Honorees, and families of those gifts given in memoriam, will be notified of your generosity.

How can I take advantage of my (or my spouse’s) company’s matching gift program?
You can multiply the impact of your gift if you are an employee or retiree of a corporation that matches gifts. Please contact your company’s human resource department to verify a matching gift option.
