Stocks, IRA, DAF gifts

Gifts to support students, faculty, and staff at UW-Green Bay create not only a legacy, but an investment in the future.

The UW-Green Bay Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and serves as the custodian for charitable gifts made to UW-Green Bay and assures that donor intent is honored. Please email for more information about ways to give including the following:

Securities & Stocks

Gifts of stock are tax-deductible and can help you avoid capital gains tax (the actual impact of such a gift on your personal taxes should be reviewed by your tax advisor). If you have specific questions about the gift, contact the Foundation at 920-465-2074.

Give From Your Ira

A qualified charitable distribution can allow people age 70½ or older to transfer up to $100,000 directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to the UW-Green Bay Foundation, without first paying federal income tax on that gift.

Give From Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is an account offered by a sponsoring organization (often a community foundation) that accepts a donor’s gifts and then makes charitable donations according to the donor’s directions. While your gift to a DAF is immediately deductible for federal income-tax purposes, your distributions to charities can be parceled over time. There is no additional income-tax deduction when a distribution is made from the DAF because a deduction was obtained for the original transfer to the DAF.

To make a donation using your donor-advised fund, please make your grant recommendation for your donation to the UW-Green Bay Foundation to your fund administrator. Please remember, donations from your DAF cannot have any benefit to you in return for the DAF gift. A letter will be sent to you by the UW-Green Bay Foundation acknowledging the donation you initiated through your DAF.

Use our pledge form to direct your gift.
