One hundred years deserves so much more. When I imagine where the Foundation started in 1922, I am struck by the magnitude and importance of the Foundation today. With assets exceeding $3 billion, the University of Oregon Foundation is a meaningful contributor to the financial health and wellbeing of the university, its faculty, students and staff. It is an honor and a privilege to be part of this organization and witness firsthand the impact it has on the University of Oregon. Stewardship is an important theme for our staff. We recognize that each one of us plays a vital role and that our roles are temporary in comparison to the longevity of the Foundation. While today we are celebrating one hundred years of service, we are proud that the Foundation will be here for hundreds of years to come, and it is our responsibility to ensure that we leave the organization in a better place for those who will come after us. Leading with our values of Trust, Integrity, Commitment and Respect in every action and interaction has been integral in remaining good stewards of the assets we manage on behalf of donors and the university. The Foundation is legally separate from the University of Oregon, but we exist to serve the university and its donors. The partnership we share with our colleagues at the university is strong and we are aligned. The financial success and growth of the endowment is due in large part to this incredible partnership, the generosity of our donors and a commitment to helping the university continue on the path of excellence. The Trustees of the Foundation are and have been the organization’s guiding lights. In the years I have been here, the generosity and commitment of Foundation Trustees has been inspiring and we are all grateful for their guidance, passion and support. Like the staff at the Foundation, our Trustees are devoted to doing what is right and making the organization better. I can say with confidence that the ethos present in the Trustees who are currently serving is consistent with those who have served over the last one hundred years. The Foundation is healthy and strong at 100 and the future is very bright for decades to come. I am proud to share this remarkable milestone with you. Thank you for your continued support of the Foundation and the University of Oregon. Paul Weinhold President/CEO

- Gifts of Real Estate | UO Foundation
Gifts of Real Estate A gift of real estate provides a lasting benefit to the university while relieving you of the responsibilities of property ownership/liquidation and generating a charitable deduction and other tax advantages. These gifts could include residences, vacation homes, farms, forest land, commercial property, income producing property, or undeveloped land. Typically, gifts of real estate are sold as soon as practically and prudently possible to meet your needs and directives. Not only can real estate be used to make an outright gift or bequest, but it can also be used to fund a charitable remainder trust or charitable gift annuity. A trust or annuity can provide you and/or another beneficiary with income for the rest of your life or lives. Ultimately, the remaining value is transferred to the Foundation to benefit the university as you have specified. For more information on using real estate to fund a trust or annuity, or to make a bequest of real estate, please visit University Office of Gift Planning , or call 800.289.2354 or 541.346.1687 . The Foundation evaluates all potential gifts of real estate for marketability and potential environmental concerns. We ask donors to supply detailed information on the property before we accept the gift. All costs of the due diligence process are paid by the Foundation. If the gift is accepted, the donor is separately responsible for obtaining and paying for a qualified appraisal as required by the IRS. For More Information If you have questions about the gift acceptance and due diligence process, call 541.302.0300 or please contact our Gift Services Department at firstname.lastname@example.org .

Gifts of Cryptocurrency The University of Oregon Foundation accepts multiple forms of cryptocurrency in addition to Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

For donors in the United States, the IRS has classified cryptocurrency as a form of property for tax purposes. This means that when you donate cryptocurrencies to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, you may not be required to pay capital gains tax on the donated cryptocurrency and you may still be able to claim a deduction for your gift. Please consult your tax adviser for more information. Gift Acceptance In accordance with our Gift Acceptance Policy, all contributions of cryptocurrency are converted to cash immediately upon acceptance and cannot be refunded for any reason. While we are happy to honor requests for anonymity, we require that all donors identify themselves when making a charitable contribution. IMPORTANT Please only send the exact cryptocurrency you have selected. Do not send any other cryptocurrencies (including layer 2, wrapped tokens, NFTs or other ERC-20 tokens not listed), as these are unsupported and may result in loss of donation.

About the Foundation Supporting the University of Oregon The University of Oregon Foundation is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization responsible for administering private gifts made to further the University of Oregon's mission. Although the Foundation is a separate entity from the university, the Foundation's sole reason for existence is to partner with the university and serve in our donors' best interest. We are committed to the highest standards of service and ethical conduct when it comes to managing donor gifts for the benefit of the university. Donors entrust the Foundation with fiduciary oversight of their charitable gifts and, in turn, we hold in confidence the details of that giving and other related information. Since 1922, the Foundation has received, invested, and distributed private gifts, funding student scholarships, faculty support, academic programs, and building improvements. The Board-approved investment strategy and distribution rate are designed to provide stable financial support for the university while preserving the purchasing power of the endowment and trust funds in the future. The Foundation ensures that all university spending of donor money is consistent with the donor's intention. Ensuring the management of donor gifts is a tremendous responsibility that every Board member and staff person take very seriously. This factors into every major decision the Foundation and its Board make, and whether that decision will affect the university today or not for many years to come.

- Gifts of Securities | UO Foundation
Gifts of Securities Gifts of appreciated marketable stocks have been considered the ‘best value’ in charitable giving. When you contribute appreciated securities that you have held for longer than one year, in addition to a charitable contribution tax deduction, you are generally able to avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in value of the assets. We liquidate gifts of stock as quickly as possible to preserve value. The proceeds, minus any broker fees/commissions, are allocated according to donor direction. To make your gift, and to ensure that you receive proper acknowledgement and documentation, please refer to our detailed instructions on transferring the following types of assets: Securities held by broker — electronic transfer Stock certificates you hold — physical transfer We recommend that you consult your tax adviser for more information regarding the gift tax and income tax results of such gifts as they apply to your specific situation. The Foundation does not provide donors with individual tax advice. If you would like to discuss the potential use of your gift of securities, please contact the university development staff member in your area of interest, email University Advancement at email@example.com or call 541.346.2113 .

- Gift Planning | UO Foundation
Gift Planning Gift planning is just that – a carefully considered strategy for giving involving a donor’s overall financial or estate plan. It is a process of charitable, legal, financial, and tax planning that enhances the mission of the University of Oregon at levels previously not thought possible while enabling a donor to address other financial and estate planning issues when making a gift. These deferred gifts are established in the present, yet cash becomes available to the university in the future, for use as specified by the donor. Planned gifts come in a variety of forms and can provide substantial tax benefits. By making an unrestricted gift to the President’s Fund, you can help the university in the areas that are needed most, or you can designate the gift so it helps the college or department you are most passionate about. A gift to an endowment will ensure you play a vital role in the future of the university. A common misconception is that planned gifts are only for the very wealthy. In fact, anybody can engage in strategic planned giving that creates lasting support for the university. While estate planning can often entail difficult decisions, it does provide peace of mind in knowing what your legacy will be. Ways to Make a Planned Gift Include the University of Oregon in your will or trust Gifts from a will or living trust are among the most common and most impactful planned gifts. Make a gift and receive income If you’ve ever wanted to make a significant gift to the UO, but didn’t want to sacrifice potential income from the gifted assets, a “life income gift” might be right for you. Retirement plan assets Qualified retirement plan assets are popular planned gift vehicles due to the unique tax advantages they present and the ease with which a donor can update disbursement instructions. Gifts that pass outside of a will Retirement accounts, life insurance policies, bank accounts, and donor-advised funds can pass outside of a will or trust, making planned giving flexible and cost effective. Life insurance gifts In addition to ensuring the financial well-being of your loved ones, a life insurance policy is a powerful philanthropic tool for you; moreover, the gift arrangement can often be made with little or no additional long-term costs to you. More Information For more information about gift planning, please call 800.289.2354 or 541.346.1687 , or visit the University Office of Gift Planning online.
