Automatic Bank Draft – You can support MMI without having to ever write another check!  It is simple and secure.  Call the Advancement Office at 334-683-2347 with the name and branch of your financial institution, bank address, routing number, account number, type of account, and amount to be deducted each month, quarter, or year.


Payroll Deduction – For MMI faculty and staff, giving to MMI is easy through payroll deduction.


Stock Gifts –   Instruct your broker to transfer the shares electronically to the Marion Military Institute (MMI) Foundation. Our custodian account is with Cetera. The account number is 3RN64733.  The DTC number is 0701.  The contact name is Mr. Charlie Rowell at 334-301-1987,

Your gift date is the date the shares are received in the MMI Foundation account. Your gift amount is the average of the high and low price on the day of receipt at Cetera.  After instructing your broker to make the transfer, please contact the Suzanne McKee in the Advancement Office by email at or call 334-683-2347 with the type of stock so that we can match your name with your gift when it arrives.


Property – You can give real estate (homes, cabins, commercial buildings, farm land, and condos) or tangible personal property (art work, book or antique collections, livestock, or crops). In some cases, you can continue to use the asset during your lifetime.


Planned Giving – From charitable trusts and retirement plan gifts to gifts of real estate or bequests, there are many ways to support MMI while also taking advantage of tax benefits.

For example: if you are 70 ½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit MMI and receive tax benefits in return.  You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to the MMI Foundation without having to pay income taxes on the money.  Another way is through a life insurance policy.  There are three ways to use a life insurance policy as a way to give to MMI; 1) Name the MMI Foundation as a beneficiary of the policy, 2) Make an outright gift of an existing policy, and 3) Make an outright gift of a new policy.  Call 334-683-2347 for more information.


Matching Gifts –  Don’t forgot to check to see if your employer provides matching gifts.  You also may qualify for a match, which doubles, and sometimes even triples the impact of your gift if you or your spouse are employed by a matching gift company.


Future Gifts include gifts that produce an income, gifts by will or trust.
