Gifts of securities, including closely held stock and mutual funds may be donated to the University directly from your brokerage account to the University of Utah’s account, or by transferring stock power to the University.

Planned Giving

Many people like to support the causes that mean the most to them with a gift through their will or trust, or other type of planned arrangement. These gifts, known as planned gifts, are usually, though not always, fulfilled after death. Although most planned gifts come from wills or living trusts, other options include life insurance, retirement assets, real estate, and securities.

Visit our Planned Giving website for more information.


Give in Honor of a Loved One

Honor a friend or loved one by making a contribution in their honor. Honorees or their families will be notified of your donation to their favorite U program.

For more information, please call Development Director, Dr. Lexie Kite, at (801) 585-5053 or email


Give through a Donor-Advised Fund

A Donor-Advised Fund offers the opportunity to create an easy-to-establish, low cost, flexible vehicle for charitable giving as an alternative to direct giving or to creating a private foundation. This is accomplished by first establishing a DAF with an irrevocable donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program. The donor then recommends the allocation of the donated assets to a qualified public charity.

For more information please contact 
Kirsten Dorius at (801) 585-0745 
or toll free (800) 716-0377 or
