Stock or Mutual Fund Gifts

Giving a gift of stock or securities to uAspire is an easy and efficient way to support our mission, and there are many benefits to you, including:

  • The market value of a gift of stock and securities is tax-deductible, just like any other charitable contribution.
  • Giving stock or securities has an additional tax advantage over a cash gift—you avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of the asset.

Legacy and Planned Giving 

A legacy gift ensures that your generosity and vision will have an impact that extends beyond your lifetime.

  • Name uAspire to receive a percentage of your estate.
  • Leave uAspire a specific dollar amount
  • Retain full control and use of your assets during your lifetime.
  • Modify your bequest if your circumstances change. 
Retirement Plan Assets

You may designate uAspire as a beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan such as an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b). To do so, contact your retirement plan administrator and complete the necessary beneficiary designation form.

Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

Using an existing Donor Advised Fund is an easy way to leave a legacy gift to uAspire. 

  • Name uAspire as the beneficiary of a percentage of your remaining DAF balance.
  • Since the funds are already held at a charity, you do not need to use a will or trust to fulfill your legacy gift intention.
