You can donate to the UAC through your workplace giving plan. If you do not have a workplace giving plan and would like to set one up, please contact us.
When you donate shares of stock that have appreciated, you a) don't have to pay tax on any gains and b) get to deduct the entire current value of the gifted stock. And the UAC gets a donation equal to the value of your stock. Pretty sweet deal for everyone. Contact your financial advisor or email us for details.
Donor-Advised Funds (DAF)
If you have a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF), you can donate directly to the UAC from your DAF. Learn more about Donor-Advised Funds.
