Year-End Giving Deadlines

Gifts by Credit Card
According to IRS determination, credit card gifts are counted in the year the transaction is processed by the bank. To ensure that your gift is processed in 2019, online giving is highly recommended. Credit card gifts may be made through our secure and quick online giving form until midnight (Mountain Time) on Dec. 31, 2019. Credit card gifts made by mail or phone must be received before 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 31, 2019.

Gifts by Check
Please note: mail delivery to Colorado Springs has been slow in recent months. To count for calendar-year 2019, gifts made by check must be postmarked by Dec. 31, 2019. Please make checks payable to Colorado College and mail to:
Office for Advancement

Colorado College
P.O. Box 1117

Colorado Springs, CO 80901-9897

Gifts by Stocks/Securities
Stock transfer instructions can be found here. To count for calendar 2019 gifts, we recommend initiating stock transfers early. Please allow several weeks if possible. Although some electronic transfers may be received within days of when the gift is initiated, longer delays are possible, especially at year-end.

IRA Transfers
The Tax Relief Extension Act of 2015, which is now permanent, reinstated the ability to transfer up to $100,000 tax free from your IRA to Colorado College. To wire funds to Colorado College, call (800) 782-6306, option 1, for instructions. See our online resources for sample IRA letters that you can send to your financial provider to request a charitable distribution from your IRA as well as a letter to CC notifying us of your intent and the source of your gift. Some IRA checks have no name listed, so please make sure to notify us if you are sending an IRA gift.


To make a gift by credit card, please use our secure online giving site. We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express.

Monthly Giving

CC’s monthly giving program allows you to maximize your gift to the college while easily making it part of your budget. You may even find that you can increase your support for CC by giving less, more frequently.


Mail your check or money order, payable to Colorado College, to:

Office for Advancement
Colorado College
P.O. Box 1117

Please include our gift form with your check.

Memorial Gifts

A gift made to honor or remember a loved one can be used to meet areas of greatest need, or can be designated to a specific area of the college. Learn more about memorial gifts.

Matching Gifts

The impact of your gift to Colorado College may be doubled or tripled. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match most charitable contributions made by their employees.
