Other Ways to Give
There are many ways to give to the University of Nebraska and its affiliates through the University of Nebraska Foundation.
You may give tangible personal property or commercial, residential or agricultural real estate. Tangible personal property is any property, other than land and buildings, that can be seen or touched. It includes furniture, books, jewelry, paintings, coins, sculptures or cars, even grain or livestock.
Commercial, agricultural and residential real estate can all be donated. While the market always fluctuates, many types of real estate have seen a net increase in value over the last several years. If the highly appreciated property were sold, the owner could incur significant capital gains tax.
You may deed property, such as your home, as well as give securities — stocks, bonds or mutual funds. Another giving option is a retained life estate agreement.
Community partners who wish to have a fundraising event with the proceeds to benefit the University of Nebraska may contact the University of Nebraska Foundation to learn more. We can help make certain the proceeds of the event support the area of the university you wish to help, share the foundation’s event guidelines and provide suggestions for a successful event.
Finally, many champions of the University of Nebraska elect to contribute their time and energy by fundraising on the university's behalf via crowdfunding. Learn more about crowdfunding and the foundation's Grow — University of Nebraska crowdfunding platform.
