Innovation Showcase


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

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 2017, 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, 2017.

Credit card gifts made by mail or phone must be received before 5 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 29, 2017.

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.


Please note: mail delivery to Colorado Springs has been slow in recent months. To count for calendar-year 2017, gifts made by check must be postmarked by Dec. 31, 2017. Keep in mind, Dec. 31 is a Sunday this year.

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

Office for Advancement
Colorado College
P.O. Box 1117
Colorado Springs, CO 80901-9897 

Please include our gift form with your check.


To count for calendar 2017 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.

Individual Retirement Accounts

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 directly to Colorado College. Below are the rules:

  • You are 70 1/2 or older on the day of the gift;
  • You transfer up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to one or more qualified charities in the tax year;
  • You do not receive any goods or services in exchange for the rollover gift; and
  • You make the gift by December 2017 to qualify for this year's credit.

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 wire transfer funds to Colorado College, call (800) 782-6306, option 1, for instructions. Please let us know of any transfer so we can be sure to thank you!

Plan ahead: this legislation has no expiration, so you will be able to make gifts directly from your IRA.

If you have any questions, please contact Stephany Marreel at or call (719) 389-6231.
