Provide grants to students, scholars, and teachers to promote research and teaching in American History, politics, law, economics and domestic and foreign policy

How to Give a Gift
However you choose to give to the Hoover Foundation, we are so thankful for your contribution.
Give a gift online
Use a secure form to make a specific gift and whether it is a one time or recurring donation. A recurring payment plan is also an option.
Give a gift by mail
If you feel more comfortable making a physical contribution, download, print, and mail your gift to the Foundation.
Gift of stock
By giving appreciated securities or mutual funds you have held more than one year, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer.
Make a planned gift
Estate gifts, including Charitable Gift Annuities, IRA Charitable Rollovers, and Charitable Remainder Uni-Trusts, can be made by making the Hoover Presidential Foundation the beneficiary of your will or trust, beneficiary of an IRA, retirement plan or life insurance policy.
Donor-advised funds are a simple, flexible and tax-efficient way to give to your favorite charities.
Charitable IRA rollover
If you are 70 ½ or older, you can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income taxes on the distribution.
A simple and easy way to make a gift to the Hoover Presidential Foundation is to make the Foundation the beneficiary of your bank account or certificate of deposit upon your death. This can be done by adding a Pay-On-Death (POD) or Transfer-On-Death (TOD) designation to your account by completing a form from your financial institution.
Will or bequest
Support the Hoover Presidential Foundation through a gift in your will.
Retirement plan assets
Use your qualified retirement account such as an IRA, 401(k), Keogh, or SEP as an asset for charitable purposes.
Life insurance policy
When the original purpose for a life insurance policy no longer applies—such as educating your children now grown or providing financial security for a spouse now deceased—your policy can become a powerful and simple way to support the Foundation.
