The University of Idaho Foundation, Inc. accepts many types of noncash gifts, including:
Publicly traded securities
The value of your stock gift depends upon the market value at the time the gift is made. On the day that the stock is transferred into a University of Idaho Foundation account, the stock is valued at the average between the high and low of that day.
The Foundation has the ability to accept gifts of real estate. The majority of the property is sold to fund the philanthropic interest of the donor. However, in an agreement that is reached between the Foundation, the University and the donor, some property is retained to be used by the University in support of a specific program area. Real property gifts must be approved and accepted by the Gift Acceptance Committee of the University of Idaho Foundation, Inc.
The Foundation has the ability to accept gifts of personal property, such as books, artwork, computers, etc. as they relate to the mission of the University. Significant collections are accepted with an accompanying endowment fund designed to support the archiving and enrichment opportunities provided by the gift.
Memorial or honorary contributions
Many donors choose to honor their loved ones by making a gift. We will notify the honoree or their family members of your generosity.
Wills and trusts
Our staff can help you and your advisers design a bequest, a charitable trust or fund an annuity that returns a life income to you or your heirs.
Corporate matching gifts
Many employers will match gifts made by their employees to the University of Idaho, doubling or even tripling your gift.

If not, please encourage them to do so, and let the Office of Development know about your support of this program.
