Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. These matching gift programs can often double or even triple your annual contributions to the university. Find out if your company offers matching gift contributions by contacting your personnel department or the Office of Advancement at (615) 547-1269.

Memorial and Honor Gifts

A gift made in memory or honor of an individual is a generous and thoughtful way to celebrate their life, accomplishments and association with Cumberland University. We will notify the honoree, or their family, of the donor's gift (but not the amount) and will administer the honorary or memorial gift as the donor specifies. To provide a gift in honor or memory of someone, please send your gift specifying the honoree's name and address and/or contact information for the person(s) you would like us to notify.


Another way to support Cumberland University is through gifts of tangible personal property. Gifts-in-kind include donations of property other than cash and marketable securities such as real estate, works of art, books, equipment, furnishings, software and licensing. For more information about in-kind donations, please contact the Office of Advancement at (615) 547-1269
