Automatic Renewal Option:
Convenient ongoing annual renewal options are available on line, by mail, and over the phone.

Term of Partnership:
The Partners of the Center Renewal Event occurs in the fall of each year. Donations received July 1 through December 31 are credited for the calendar year following the donation. Donations received January 1 through June 30 are credited for that calendar year.

Matching Contributions:
Employees of a corporation with a corporate matching gifts program will receive membership credit for the total amount of the combined contributions. Please consult with your company's personnel department to obtain the proper matching form.

Tax Deductions:
Rice University is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Under IRS Guidelines, the fair market value (FMV) of any benefits received by you is not substantial; therefore, the full amount of your personal gift is a deductible contribution.

Donor Advised Funds and Fair Market Value:
If you are considering making a gift via a Donor Advised Fund, CSWGS policy may require that we withhold benefits with a Fair Market Value (FMV). In compliance with the Internal Revenue Code Notice 2017-73 and IRS guidance, Rice does not accept, in whole or in part, payments for events, memberships, auction items, tickets, etc., from Donor Advised Funds, foundations or Qualified Charitable Distributions from an IRA account. Donors of IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions and Donor Advised Fund grants are prohibited from claiming a charitable tax deduction for their distributions and grants.
