​Is my gift to JU tax deductible?

Yes! Jacksonville University is qualified as a tax-exempt organization. Under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code, all gifts to the University are tax deductible. For the amount of your gift that you can deduct, please consult your tax advisor or the IRS website.

​How do I make sure my gift qualifies me for a tax deduction?

To have your gift counted in the current tax year, the envelope must be postmarked by December 31st and your check must be dated by December 31st. Online gifts are the easiest way to ensure your gift applies to the tax year. Gifts made on or before December 31st are included in the current tax year.

What is a matching gift, and how do I know if I qualify to have my gift matched?
