Designating Your Gift

While unrestricted gifts intended for use in meeting the University’s most pressing needs are of course greatly appreciated, most donors prefer to designate their gifts to particular programs. Undesignated gifts are typically placed in an account controlled by the President, who is in the best position to establish spending priorities based upon the overall financial situation at the institution.

Donors may designate their gifts in a variety of ways depending upon their interests and philanthropic goals:

  • Designate a specific academic college or department or program (i.e., College of Visual Arts and Design or Educational Psychology Department or One O’Clock Lab Band)
  • Designate a specific non-academic area (i.e., Women’s Golf Team or Library Collections or Student Health & Wellness Center)
  • Designate a specific purpose (i.e., scholarships or capital equipment or travel)

The Division of Advancement's Development Officers are prepared to work with donors to accomplish their giving goals in a manner that satisfies University rules and regulations, as well as those of the IRS.
