Your Gift Makes An Impact!

Your gift today will make a real and lasting impact on the lives of our current and future students.

Annual financial support from Tiffin University alumni, parents, and friends helps cover the gap between tuition and the true cost of attendance including student scholarships, and provides annual support to academic, campus and student services.

Your gifts to Tiffin University help us fulfill our mission to offer quality, professionally focused, learning-centered undergraduate and graduate degree programs and life-long learning opportunities. We prepare traditional college-age students and adult students for successful careers and for productive and satisfying lives of excellence, leadership and service.

Pledges – Pledges enable a donor to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and “tax-wise.” A pledge may enable you to consider a more significant gift than would have been otherwise possible. Terms for payment on pledges are flexible and at the option of the donor. Contact the Development Office for more information about making a pledge.

Planned Gifts – A long-term planned gift may be the best way to make a gift from an estate, financial and tax-planning perspective. This can be accomplished in a number of ways, including charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, and bequests. For more information on planned giving visit or contact Ronald Schumacher, Vice President for Development and Public Affairs, at (419) 448-3282, or via email at

Company Matching Gifts – Many companies match their employees’ gifts to educational institutions. Consult with your personnel office to see if they have a matching gift program. Matching gifts are credited to your individual gift record and count toward recognition in one of our giving clubs.

Real Estate and Gifts-in-Kind – The United States Tax Code encourages individuals to donate real or personal property to non-profit organizations like Tiffin University. We would like to invite you to review your inventory of personal assets and consider the endless options of non-cash gifts. A few suggestions are: vacation homes, time shares, automobiles, boats, antiques, artwork, musical instruments, books, collectables, aircraft, farm land and real estate, furniture, and exercise equipment. For further information, please contact Ronald Schumacher, Vice President for Development and Public Affairs, at (419) 448-3282, or via email at

TU License Plates - Take TU On The Road With You!

If you are an Ohio resident, you can show your pride in Tiffin University through the Collegiate License Plate Program, sponsored by the State of Ohio.

The cost to participate in the program (in addition to any normal renewal fees) is just $35 annually. Of this $35 annual fee, $25 is directed as a charitable deduction to the TU General Scholarship Fund.

Due to a change in the Drivers Privacy Protection Act, Ohio Revised Code 4501.27, the release of personal information will not be provided without written consent by the individual. Therefore, you must provide proof of your participation in the collegiate license plate program in order for TU to recognize your contribution to the TU General Scholarship Fund.

If you have questions about this program, please contact TU’s Alumni office, at (419) 448-3282 or your local Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
