Donate Stocks

Donating appreciated securities, including stocks, ETF's or mutual fund shares directly to the University, is an easy way to avoid capital gains taxes, receive an income tax deduction and support the University of Dayton all at the same time. Connect with us to learn more about donating stocks.

Give a Qualified Charitable Distribution Through an IRA

Are you over the age of 70? If so, there is an excellent way to continue your support of the University of Dayton and lower your taxes! After the age of 70½, you can make a tax-free direct gift from your IRA, up to $100,000 per year, to eligible charities, like UD. The transfer does not create taxable income for you nor does it allow you to take a tax deduction for the gift, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your taxes. Connect with us to learn more about making a qualified charitable distribution.

Donor Advised Funds

When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction.
