Ways to Give

There are ways to give outside of the standard check or credit card. Tax-smart approaches maximize your philanthropic impact. ​

Contact Nicki Brown for more information on making an impact with these methods. ​

UWGCR does not provide tax advice. Please consult a tax professional regarding your personal circumstances and how your donation can help you meet your financial and philanthropic goals.

If you have a qualified retirement plan such as an IRA, individuals age 70 ½+ can make charitable gifts directly from a traditional IRA account to a nonprofit organization tax-free. An IRA Charitable Rollover to a tax-exempt organization classified as a 501(c)(3) organization count towards your IRA Required Minimum Distribution. 

Gifts of stock or other appreciated securities are easily transferred to UWGCR and donating these assets can have tax benefits. Contact Nicki Brown for more information on how to give via stock transfer. 

If your employer runs a Workplace Campaign, contributions you make via payroll deduction can add up to a Leadership Society-level gift. On a bi-weekly payroll schedule, give $39 or more per pay period to reach the $1,000 threshold


Set up an automatic credit card payment on a weekly basis or monthly basis.​
