Do you have a valuable collection of books or memorabilia? Are you able to donate equipment or other supplies that Acadia could use? If so, you could make a gift-in-kind donation.

A gift-in-kind is a non-cash donation and includes items such as personal effects, artwork and real estate.

Acadia will gladly accept any gifts-in-kind for which there is a use on campus. Once the gift is appraised, a donation receipt will be issued for the fair market value of the gift.

Typical gifts of property to Acadia include:

  • Land such as the Morton family's Heckman's Island gift in 2005.
  • Artwork to be displayed in the Acadia Art Gallery.
  • Special library collections.
  • Personal or business papers of historical or research interest to the University's scholars.

If you are considering a gift to Acadia University, we strongly recommend that you seek professional financial and legal advice that takes into account your unique circumstances. We also urge you to discuss your gift with a University official prior to finalizing the details of your gift arrangement.
