Make a Gift

Donors can make an unrestricted gift or target their giving to the fundraising priority that most interests them, as well as to UWM's schools and programs.

Appreciated SecuritiesA transfer of stocks, bonds, treasuries, and mutual funds, held long term, to the UWM Foundation allows you to make a gift and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full market value of the securities. You pay no capital gains tax on your appreciated gift.

Gifts in Memory or in Honor of a Relative or Friend
A generous and thoughtful way to recognize a person's life and accomplishments. When an honorary or memorial gift is made, the Foundation will notify the honoree or next of kin, and the gift is administered as specified.

Real Estate and Personal PropertyReal Estate and other personal property such as art and jewelry can be used to make a gift to the University. Real estate gifts entitle you to the same tax benefits as cash or securities, provided the real estate has been owned more than one year and there are no liens on the property. Personal property gifts owned for more than one year can be deducted at the asset's current market value. The Foundation reviews each potential gift of real estate and personal property before accepting the gift.
