Ways to Give
We want to help you design a giving approach that reflects your philanthropic passions and financial plan. Investments into the College of Veterinary medicine can be given for use by the College today, established through an endowment for support in perpetuity or be given through your estate.
If you are looking to make an outright gift to immediately financially benefit the College, checks should be made out to the University of Arizona Foundation – College of Veterinary Medicine, with a specific purpose on the memo line.
Many companies match the charitable contributions of employees. If you are employed bt a matching gift company, your donation to CVM could be worth two, three, or even four times as much. In most cases, using this benefit is as easy as contacting human resources. A typical requirement of gift-matching is a short gift validation form mailed in with your paid contribution. Thousands of potential donation dollars are missed out on each year when match-eligible donors fail to submit company matching forms.
Other Tax Advantages
Securities Gifts of appreciated securities can provide special tax advantages, including a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the gift and avoidance of capital gains taxes. Accepted appreciated securities include stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. The simplest and most efficient way to make a gift of any security is to instruct your broker to transfer the security to the University of Arizona Foundation for the benefit of the College of Veterinary Medicine.
Planned and Deferred Gifts
Create your legacy through a planned gift. Charitable gifts help you meet your current philanthropic goals and extend your generosity well into the future. A planned gift can also protect your assets, provide for your family, and ensure income for life. You can even make a significant impact through a gift that costs you nothing in your lifetime (through a charitable bequest under your will.)

Real Estate Gifts
Gifts of real estate are sold quickly and converted into cash or used directly in connection with a University program. All real estate gifted to the University of Arizona Foundation is on the market for sale. Types of accepted real estate include vacant land, residential property, and commercial property. Improved property with mortgages can be accepted if the loan is 50% or less of the appraised value and can be sold quickly.
Another way to support CVM is through gifts of tangible personal property. When the gift relates to the “charitable purpose” of the UA, you may be eligible for a deduction equal to the full fair market value of the item. Gifts-in-kind include computer equipment, automobiles, furnishings, precious minerals, livestock, and machinery.
Your endowed gift will support CVM in perpetuity by establishing a permanent account, the interest from which will generate a funding stream to support the program or initiative of your choice. Endowment gifts can be made through cash and corporate matching programs, securities, real estate, or can be planned or deferred. When you design an endowment gift to CVM, you are investing in the future — we will hold that gift in perpetuity. The minimum amount of $25,000 will be invested, and a designated portion of the investment return will fund the endowed program, faculty chair, scholarship, or initiative of your choice. Investment strategy, historical return, and additional information are available upon request. An endowed gift is also a lasting and meaningful opportunity to have your name or the name of a loved one linked with an area of special interest within CVM.
