    Stewardship Procedure and Process


    Policy Statement

    The policies and procedures set forth in this document are intended to assist and guide the activities of University personnel who are involved in the planning, promotion, solicitation, application, receipt, acceptance, and disposition of gifts to Adelphi University.


    Reason for Policy

    The Office of the Vice President of University Advancement ensures a comprehensive and quality stewardship program, which cultivates, engages and recognizes all donors and prospective donors on a university-wide basis to further the efforts of private financial support. The mission of the Office is to sustain and nurture the University’s lifelong relationship with its donors while providing accurate and timely information pertaining to the investment, use and impact of their gifts.

    Definitions

    Receipts vs. Acknowledgements

    For the purposes of this policy, the term “receipt” will refer to the formal document issued by Adelphi University that (1) confirms the gift has been received by the University and (2) contains the necessary information to serve as documentation for the donor’s claim of a charitable deduction from their income tax.

    The term “acknowledgment” has a broader connotation than “receipt,” for acknowledgments may include a wide variety of means for expressing gratitude and appreciation to a donor. A receipt is considered to be an acknowledgment, but all acknowledgments do not necessarily qualify as receipts.


    Forms

    This policy does not have forms associated with it at this time. Upon periodic policy review this area will be evaluated to determine if additional information is needed to supplement the policy.
