Ways To Give
Throughout the University’s history, gifts from generous alumni and friends like
you have been vital to UT’s success. Today, your support—whether to UT’s Annual
Fund or capital campaign—remains more important than ever as we work together to
make The University of Toledo a university of distinction.
Unrestricted gifts, given with no
restricted purpose, are especially encouraged. These give the University the
flexibility to take advantage of special opportunities and to meet emergency
needs. Income from unrestricted endowment funds will be used for priority needs
determined by the University.
Donors may designate gifts, including those for unrestricted use, for a
particular academic division of the University. Gifts that are restricted for a
specific use, such as scholarships, may also be designated for a particular
college, department or program.
Legacy or deferred gifts allow
donors to make a significant gift that will benefit UT in the future, typically
at the donor’s or beneficiary’s death. The UT Foundation welcomes the
opportunity to work with donors and their legal and financial advisers to
establish planned gift arrangements.
In many cases, planned gifts offer donors substantial tax advantages and
financial benefits, such as lowered estate tax liability or increased spendable
income. Donors should consult with their own advisers as to the specific tax
