  • 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 or call 541.346.2113 .

  • Endowed Gifts | UO Foundation

    Endowed Gifts Some of the most effective and far-reaching gifts are those that create endowments. Endowed funds are critical to the financial stability of the University of Oregon by providing both a current and future revenue stream that lasts in perpetuity. The Board approves an annual distribution amount that is made available for spending while the balance remains invested within a pool of similar funds to maximize returns with a prudent level of risk. The goal is to provide a relatively stable revenue stream to the university while maintaining the purchasing power of the endowment over time. Learn more about the Foundation's endowment investment performance . Creating an Endowment An endowment can be created through an outright gift or pledge, through a bequest in a will, or through a life income gift such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust. An endowment is eligible for distribution once either the original values of all gifts or the market value on December 31 meets the minimum funding level at the time the endowment was established. Distributions begin the following fiscal year (July - June). If you are interested in establishing an endowed fund, please contact the University development staff member in your area of interest, email University Advancement at or call 541.346.2113 .
