Unleashing Possibilities Together

So much of what we do is focused on wellness, whether it be through care for the human-animal bond, incredible basic research on addiction, innovation in education that builds confidence in our students, or generating the next big idea around global health.

You can help us unleash possibilities together to further wellness for our whole community — healthy animals, healthy people, healthy planet.

How to give

There are many ways you can give to the college, including planned giving, endowments, and matching gifts. Many people are surprised to learn that smart estate planning can take advantage of gift planning strategies with many attractive benefits, such as increased income, reduced taxes, and an opportunity to see their gift at work.

  • Gift and estate planning – By including the college in your estate or financial plans, you will make a lasting difference and provide opportunities to future generations.
  • Endowed gifts – Endowments are a particularly powerful investment in the college’s future because they deliver a dependable, perpetual source of funding. 
  • Matching gifts – Many employers will match their employees’ donations. Some employers will even match the gifts of retired employees, spouses, parents, and even contributions from their board of directors.
  • Stock and securities – Gifts of marketable stocks or securities shares that have appreciated can have an immediate impact on the college while creating a favorable income tax deduction for you based on the assets’ current value.
  • IRA charitable rollover – A tax-saving way to help the college with a gift from your IRA.

Endowed chairs and professorships

Funding for endowed chairs and professorships allows the college to recruit and retain outstanding faculty, drive research in new directions, enrich student education, and foster collaboration within the university and around the globe.
