Cash gifts include gifts made with your credit card, checks, drafts and money orders. If your gift is mailed to UWS before the end of the calendar year and you itemize deductions on your taxes, you’re eligible for an income tax deduction for that year.
If you wish to direct your support to a particular fund or initiative, or if you wish your gift to honor or memorialize someone, please include these instructions with your gift.

Like most other charitable gifts, real estate gifts are tax deductible – and that’s just the beginning. Through various ways of managing property and arranging for its distribution to family and others, you can minimize taxes and dilemmas for your heirs. You may also be able to arrange supplemental income for retirement as part of your gift, or give a home while you continue to live in it.
If you’re ready to give, or if you have questions, please contact your tax or legal professional and then contact Kelli Rule, development officer at 503-847-2556 or email@example.com.
Donate Stocks and Bonds
The donation of stocks and bonds are an effective way for our donors to support our university and students. Please contact us by phone at 503-847-2556 or email about electronically transmitting shares from your brokerage account to our account – an easy way to make an important gift.
Planned gifts include life income plans (annuities and remainder trusts) as well as lead trusts, bequests, real estate, tangible personal property, closely held stock, life insurance and gifts of a remainder interest in a home. Each gift option offers various benefits. When you make a planned gift to UWS, your generosity will have an impact, perhaps immediately, and will grow far beyond your lifetime.
How will my gift be recognized?
- A permanent legacy at UWS, in appropriate communications and on our Hampton Hall donor recognition wall.
- Reports on the investment performance of gifts to UWS and highlights of the gift planning program.
- Professional, personalized gift planning services and relationship management throughout your lifetime and beyond.
- Invitations to annual planned giving luncheon with the university president.
- The option to be an anonymous member if you do not want your membership to be publicized.
Do I need to inform UWS that we have named you in our will?
