Ways to Give

Annual Gifts make an incredible impact on the educational experience MSOE provides to its students. You can designate your gift to the Fund for MSOE, to scholarships, or to the department, program, organization, team or cause of your choice. There are a number of ways to make your annual gift.

Make an Online Gift - One of the easiest ways to make your gift to MSOE is making a secure gift via a credit or debit card via our secure giving website.  You can make a one-time gift or set up a recurring annual or monthly gift to the designation of your choice. 

Mail – If you prefer to make your gift via check, please make your check payable to “Milwaukee School of Engineering” and specify your gift designation in the memo line or in an accompanying letter.  

Phone – If you would like to make your gift via phone, please call senior director of development Greg Casey at (414) 277-4510 for assistance.

Appreciated Stock and Securities – Many donors find it advantageous to fund their annual gift by gifting appreciated securities directly to MSOE.  

IRA Required Minimum Distribution – If you are required to take a distribution from your IRA and you would prefer not to take the income, you can direct your RMD directly to MSOE to fund your gift. 

Multi-Year Pledge Choosing to sign up for a multi-year pledge can simplify your annual giving, help you make a larger gift over time and make an increased impact on MSOE.  A multi-year pledge allows you to make a larger gift over time. You can commit the same amount each year or different amounts annually based on you and your family’s financial plans. You can choose to make your pledge for a period of up to five years, and can support any fund designation of your choice. Most donors who decide to make naming gifts or establish a new fund choose to complete their gift with a multi-year pledge. 

Secure a Matching Gift You can increase the value of your gift to MSOE by using your company’s matching gift program. When a donor contributes to a nonprofit organization such as MSOE, their employer may be willing to donate an equal or greater amount to the same nonprofit. Companies typically match employee gifts dollar for dollar – with some offering 2:1 or even 3:1 matches.

Most employer matching gift programs require the donor to submit an online or paper form to secure a match. Please contact University Advancement gift processing at (414) 277-7151 or advancementops@msoe.edu with any questions on the matching gift process.
