Gift Planning

Gift planning integrates your charitable gift into your overall financial, tax and estate planning to maximize benefits both to you and to the University of Oregon. Deferred gifts are gifts that are established in the present yet cash becomes available to the University in the future for use as specified by the donor. Some deferred gifts are straightforward, such as a bequest. Others are more complex, providing current tax benefits as well as income for the donor, a beneficiary, or both. Depending on the arrangements you choose, you can also:

  • Reduce your income taxes
  • Avoid capital-gains tax
  • Increase your spendable income
  • Receive payments for life
