Memorials and Tribute Gifts
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by New Mexico State University, establishing a memorial or tribute gift through the NMSU Foundation is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those NMSU serves.Watch How It Works
An Example of How It Works
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising NMSU for its tireless efforts to better his community.
Sarah decided to make a gift to the NMSU Foundation in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at NMSU thanks to the gift, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
