Types of Gifts
There are many ways to give to UCF. Please choose what works best for you. We appreciate your support.
Check, Card or Cash
Direct gifts — whether cash, check or via credit card — are critically important to UCF because they can be put to work immediately, increasing their impact and extending their reach. Giving online through UCF’s secure giving site allows us to address the university’s most urgent needs today.
Monthly deductions via your checking or savings account or via credit card are a simple way to maximize your gift and sustain your impact through regular and consistent contributions to students, faculty and programs at UCF.
A planned, or deferred, gift — such as a bequest made through your will or a gift of life insurance — enables you to make a gift to UCF while providing financial security for you and your family. The Office of Gift Planning will help you explore the many options available to create a planned giving strategy that meets your needs and goals.
STOCK OR MUTUAL FUNDS
Gifts of stock and mutual funds can be designated to support an area most meaningful to you.
By making a gift of real estate, you can leverage a significant asset for your benefit and the university’s. While supporting UCF’s mission, you can save on taxes, increase your income, and/or reduce the burden of maintaining or selling your property. Gifts can be made with residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate.
CRYPTOCURRENCY, Venmo and PayPal
Our online donation form makes it easy to give a variety of cryptocurrency, including bitcoin, as well as using Venmo and PayPal. Simply fill out our form and our partner, GIVECAMPUS, will take care of the rest. Questions about cryptocurrency? Please contact Kelly Travis, director of Gifts and Records, at [email protected].
A pledge is a statement of intention to make a gift to UCF. Donors who seek to defer the bulk of their giving until a future date, or who want to give via installments over time, may use this giving strategy. Pledges are typically made with a preliminary first installment gift and provide a source of consistent and dependable funding for the university.
