  • Cash: Cash gifts provide immediate benefits to the institution. The actual cost to the donor may be reduced by tax savings achieved through a charitable contribution deduction. To donate, please click here.
  • Pledges: UAB accepts pledges payable over a period of up to five years. Pledges may be paid in equal or varying amounts, according to the donor's wishes or convenience. To pledge, please click here. 
  • Appreciated Marketable Securities: Giving appreciated securities (stocks) may have special tax advantages. Within limitations, the donor may avoid the capital gains tax and be eligible for a charitable deduction for the full market value of such securities at the time of the gift. Contributions in excess of the limitations may be eligible for carryover to future tax years.
  • Real Estate and Personal Property: Gifts of real estate and other personal property generally have the advantages described for gifts of securities, provided the property is a long-term capital asset in the hands of the donor. The donor's qualified appraiser must determine fair market value for income tax purposes.
  • Bequests: UAB is especially grateful to the many generous friends who have made gifts through their wills or estate plans. For information on how to accomplish this, and for suggested language to use in testamentary documents, please call Planned Gifts: Planned giving allows the donor to make a gift and enjoy the benefits of federal and state tax provisions. This favorable tax treatment may offer you ways to make more significant gifts than you might have otherwise thought possible. With careful planning, it is possible to reduce or eliminate income taxes, capital gain taxes, and other "transfer" taxes such as estate taxes, gift taxes, and generation-skipping taxes. Through some gift options, you can enjoy these tax savings while converting appreciated assets into an income for yourself or others.
