A legacy gift enables you to support UAH, secures the financial needs of your loved ones, and provides you with tax benefits. Legacy gifts of all sizes help us meet our current goals and reach further into the future.
By including UAH in your will or trust, naming the school as a beneficiary of all or part of a life insurance policy, or taking advantage of other giving opportunities, you can preserve your assets now and support UAH for years to come. Your gift will have a real and lasting impact.

When you make a gift to UAH from your will or trust, you'll be welcomed into the Richardson Shaver Thrasher (RST) Society and join other supporters and friends of our important mission. Is UAH already in your plans? Please let us know so we can properly thank you and make sure your gift will be used as you've intended.
Not only do you have options for how your gift will be used, you also have options on what to give and how to give. There are gifts that cost you nothing now, gifts that pay you income, and gifts that allow you to decide what happens when.
Through a provision in your written and executed will, you can make a gift in the form of cash, securities, real estate or personal property. There are many types of bequests. Choose the one that best fits your needs and intentions.
Naming UAH as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh, profit-sharing pension plan or other Donor-Advised Funds, will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings.
When you donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares instead of cash, you'll receive charitable deductions at full, fair market value while reducing capital gains impact.
If you're 70 ½ or older, you can make a gift directly from your IRA to UAH . While there is no charitable deduction for a rollover gift, you do avoid the income tax on the donated portion of your required minimum distribution.
Designate UAH as a beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the balance of your Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) through your fund administrator. You also can make a grant to us at any time from your Donor-Advised Fund.
Name UAH as the beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy; donate an existing, paid-up life insurance policy you no longer need; or purchase a new life insurance policy and name UAH as the owner and beneficiary.
Donors just like you have made a real impact just by adding a few words to their will or using one of the many giving options available.
