Learn which assets are most commonly used to fund a gift.

 

Cash

One of the most common ways to make a gift to the University of New Hampshire Foundation is to write a check, make a gift using a credit card, or donate online.

Stocks & Bonds

Giving appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting the University of New Hampshire Foundation.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield you or your heirs from taxes while funding UNH’s future.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.

Real Estate

A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages, and make a significant charitable gift to UNH.

Personal Property

A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support UNH.
