RePete Giving

New Mexico State University Foundation launched a new program to support those who give on a recurring basis. In honor of our beloved mascot, Pistol Pete, you can show your pride and become a rePETE donor by choosing to repeat your gift monthly or annually through our secure online platform. For more information, call the Loyalty Giving Program at (800) 342-6678 or email loyaltygiving@nmsu.edu.

Faculty / Staff Payroll Deduction (Crimson Colleagues)

New Mexico State University faculty and staff may have gifts deducted from each paycheck by logging in to mypayrollgift.nmsu.edu and entering your my.nmsu.edu credentials. For more information about employee giving, contact Terra Winter at (575) 646-1613.


Pledges give donors the option to make payments toward a gift over time. Pledges are preferred by many donors who wish to make a big impact at NMSU, but seek the more flexible approach of spreading payments over a predetermined span of time. To set up a pledge, please contact us.

Electronic Funds Transfer

You can authorize you or bank to transfer your gift to the NMSU Foundation automatically, saving you time and paperwork. Please complete the EFT Form and mail to NMSU Foundation, Inc., PO Box 3590, Las Cruces, NM 88003-3590.

Many employers offer matching gift benefits to their employees, doubling the value of their charitable contributions. Making use of your employer's matching gift program enables you to provide more support for the NMSU scholarships and programs of your choice.

Since every employer handles their matching gift program differently, we recommend that you contact your HR department directly. You may also Search Matching Gift Companies here.

Appreciated Securities with Stock Certificates Held by a Bank or Broker

Please notify the Foundation you are making a securities gift so we may appropriately recognize your gift as well as place it in the fund you designate. Without such notice, gifts of stock may be transferred to the Foundation with the identity of the donor unknown, making proper credit and timely acknowledgement extremely difficult. To make a gift of stock, have your broker transfer the shares to Merrill Lynch, Albuquerque, DTC #5198, for credit to the New Mexico State University Foundation, account number 433-07126. Either you or your broker can contact Gift Accounting at (575) 646-1613 or (800) 342-6678 should you have any questions.

Appreciated Securities if You Hold the Stock Certificates Yourself

If you hold the stock certificate(s) yourself, mail it and a completed stock power form, in separate envelopes but on the same day, to: NMSU Foundation, Inc., Attention: Gift Accounting, P. O. Box 3590, Las Cruces, NM 88003-3590.

We suggest you send the stock certificate(s) by certified mail. Please include a note indicating the designation of the gift in one of the envelopes. If the stock is registered in more than one name, each person must sign the stock power form. Sign only your names as they appear on the stock certificate(s). The NMSU Foundation will complete all of the other information and will guarantee the signature when the stock certificate is being sent for transfer. If you are giving more than one type of stock, send a stock power form for each stock.

Stock power forms are available at most banks. If you would like to have one mailed or faxed to you, please contact Gift Accounting at (575) 646-1613 or (800) 342-6678.
