Gifts of Property: Property such as real estate, art, or collectibles can provide excellent tax benefits.

Endowments: An endowment is a self-renewing resource that the University holds in perpetuity and does not spend. Instead, endowed gifts are invested, and the earnings from these investments help fund scholarships, fellowships, and other needs of the School of Art + Design.

Creating an endowed fund gives you an opportunity to put your name or the name of another person or organization on the endowment in memory or tribute. The minimum investment required to create an endowment within the School of Art + Design is $25,000, and may be established with an outright or planned gift.
