Giving to Hanover

Make the giving season twice as bright

Thank you for supporting the student experience with a year-end gift to Hanover College. Your contribution helps to bolster Hanover’s resources as we prepare for the second half of the school year, while offering tax benefits to you as we near the end of the 2014 tax year.

Give today and reduce your Indiana State Income Tax by 50% of the gift. Individual filers receive a $100 credit for the first $200 contributed to Hanover, while joint filers receive a $200 credit for the first $400 contributed to the College.

If you itemize on your federal return, you can reduce the cost of your gift to Hanover even more.
