Gift Planning

We Are Here for You

First and foremost, we want you to know that we are here for you during these uncertain times.

Many of you who are affected by current events are donors to our organization, and you may be wondering about the impact on the gifts you have arranged or may be considering.

If you have questions regarding any past gifts or funds you’ve established, any past gifts from which you’re currently receiving income, or new gifts you had been or are considering, please contact us. We are ready to help you and provide whatever information you seek.

Your life, your plan

You’ve worked hard for what you have, so you care about your legacy. Gift planning integrates your charitable gift into your overall financial, tax, and estate planning to maximize benefits both to you and to the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Depending on the arrangements you choose, you can:

  • – Reduce your income taxes
  • – Avoid capital-gains tax
  • – Increase your spendable income
  • – Retain payments for life

The Office of Gift Planning at the University of Wisconsin Foundation is here to answer any questions you might have along the way. Learn more »
