A gift to the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering is an investment in the future. It demonstrates a shared vision of the importance of engineering education and research and a confidence in NC State´s ability to execute that vision wisely.

Through generous alumni, corporate partners and friends, the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering has been able to create opportunities, foster new research and technologies and attract the brightest professors and students.

Your investments in our department not only contribute to this vision but also help ensure your NC State degree continues to grow in prominence and value.

Gifts of Cash

Gifts of cash are the easiest and most direct way to make a gift. Cash gifts can be made simply by writing a check payable to NC State Engineering Foundation, Inc., and sent to Daniel Stancil, Department Head, Campus Box 7911, Raleigh, NC 27695, with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the check memo.

You can also give a gift online through the NC State Engineering Foundation, Inc. Remember to designate your gift to the Electrical and Computer Engineering department.

Another option would be providing a gift through your will or living trust in the form of a cash bequest. Please notify Dr. Stancil in advance or include instructions telling him which program(s) you would like to support with your gift. Your charitable deduction will be the value of the gift you make.

Gifts in Kind

Gifts of property such as equipment, paintings or other art objects can be donated to the Electrical and Computer Engineering department and entitle you to an income tax deduction. Because items of this nature are subject to estate tax, a donation, either during your lifetime or as a bequest under your will, may also produce estate tax savings.

For gifts made during your lifetime, the amount of the deduction depends on whether the gift relates directly to NC State's educational activities and purposes. This "related-use" restriction does not apply to gifts made through a bequest under your will or living trust. Donors can deduct the full fair market value of the property provided they have owned the assets for at least one year and the gift satisfies the "related-use" requirement. With property owned for less than twelve months, the deduction is limited to the price paid for the property.

The ECE Department also expresses it's appreciation to the following companies who have provided contributions valued up to $14,999:
