Securities

Other than cash, securities (stock shares, mutual fund shares, bonds) are the most popular asset to fund charitable gifts. Complete the University of Maryland’s securities transfer form and follow the instructions to submit your gift.

Matching Gifts

Supplement your gift by taking advantage of your employer’s matching gift program. It is a way to quickly and easily increase the impact of your gift to The Clarice while boosting your share of philanthropy’s greatest benefit: personal satisfaction.

More than 33,000 companies match charitable gifts made by their employees, retirees and board members.

Search our online database to find out if your (or your spouse's) employer matches. The search engine will also tell you exactly how to take advantage of this opportunity.

Planned Giving

Given the opportunity, most people would like to leave a legacy to organizations they valued in their lifetime. Planned giving is a constructive way to consider gifts that exceed outright gifts of cash or appreciated securities.

The Founders Legacy Circle at the University of Maryland honors all benefactors, living and deceased, who help to ensure the excellence of the University and its programs. Click here for more information on how to make an impact through a planned gift.
