Making a Difference: Ways to Give

Cash gifts are always encouraged and 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 many different ways to make a planned gift to the College of Natural Resources. These include bequests, charitable trusts, gift annuities, pooled income funds, and life insurance. Many of these vehicles offer you a lifetime income, with the remainder going to the college afterward. They also offer unique tax advantages. Many donors find planned gifts are an ideal way to support a cause that is important to them, while meeting their income needs and/or providing for family members.

Charitable gifts generate tax deductions undefined – both income and state. While you need to consult your own tax adviser as to how a gift impacts 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.
