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

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.

Designated Gifts

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.

  • Matching Gifts: Corporate matching gifts count toward a donor’s total giving and may significantly increase the gift’s value.

Legacy Gifts

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 consequences.
