Ways to Give


Gifts, no matter their size, generally fall into two categories: outright gifts and planned/deferred gifts.

An outright gift is just that — something you give immediately and directly. It can be as simple as an online gift through the website or as unique as donating a piece of real property or art. It all depends on what you’d like to do or help UF accomplish. Examples of outright gifts are:

  • Online gifts
  • Brick programs
  • Tangible assets (such as books, art, etc.)
  • Expendable (or non-endowed) gifts
  • Endowments
  • Naming opportunities
  • Corporate match
  • Stocks and other securities
  • Donor-advised funds
  • IRA rollovers

Planned or deferred gifts, on the other hand, are gifts that require some planning, are tax advantaged and may be deferred. Such gifts include:

  • Bequests or other estate commitments
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Gifts of insurance

Detailed information is available on our Gift Planning pages, by contacting Paul Caspersen, executive director for Gift Planning, at pcaspersen@uff.ufl.edu or (352) 392-5513, or by finding an advisor.
