The University of Idaho Foundation, Inc. accepts gifts made with either a Visa or MasterCard over the phone, by mail or online.
Cash gifts are always encouraged and are the simplest way to make a gift to the University of Idaho. They can be directed to any college program, school, or area of your choice, and can be for outright expenditures or added to the endowment, with the income available for the University of Idaho's use.
Holdings such as corporate securities and real estate that have appreciated in value make great giving assets. The University of Idaho credits you for the full fair market value of the stock or land, and there are some favorable tax benefits.
There are numerous ways to make a planned gift.
Charitable gifts generate tax deductions – both income and state. While you need to consult your own tax adviser as to how a gift will impact your tax obligation, we do have knowledgeable professionals and resources available to help explain the general tax benefits of a particular type of gift.
Memorial or Honorary Gifts
To make a gift in memory or in honor of someone, attach a note with your gift that includes the name of the person you are memorializing or honoring. For memorial gifts, also include the family contact name(s) and address(es). For honorary gifts, include the address of the person you are honoring. We will send a card to the family/individual to notify them that you have made a gift. (The amount of your gift will not be revealed.)
If a special memorial fund or honorary fund has already been created in the person’s name, your gift will be credited to that account unless you tell us otherwise. If a special fund has not been created, your gift will be credited to the designation you indicate.
