Gifts of Stocks or Securities

A gift of appreciated securities you have held for more than one year provides an opportunity to take a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income—and will not have to recognize the appreciation as capital gain.

Elmer Templeton,a member of the Class of 1959, a Petroleum Engineering professor in the 1960s and 1970s, and one of the first inductees into his Department's Hall of Fame, was also one of the first eight recipients of the Selby Scholarship in 1958.

Establish a Scholarship

Donors may create a named endowed scholarship fund in memory or honor of a friend or loved one or leave a legacy with their name that will become a permanent addition to the Marietta College endowment. Donors of endowed funds are provided with annual financial reports on their funds and a description of the activities, students, and programs they benefit.

Scholarships are funded through grants and bequests placed in the College’s permanent endowment fund (or in separate trusts) and annual gifts by alumni, parents, and friends of the College. Their annual income is used to provide assistance to students with financial need and/or scholastic achievement as described.

If you are interested in setting up a fund, please email us at or call (800) 274-4704.

The award may include a summer study stipend for physics research. The Rickey Scholarships were established in 2000 by David M. Rickey, Class of 1978 and Jan Nielsen, and the J&D Family Foundation.
