Give to UACCM

UACCM Development staff is available to consult and assist in defining donor interest and insuring that the donor's intent is satisfied.

The UACCM Foundation accepts gifts of any size from donors year round. Donors can choose to designate their donation to a particular cause (i.e. scholarships, program areas, campus projects) or give to the annual fund. Annual fund donations are designated for projects by the Foundation Board of Directors.

Cash gifts

Cash (in the form of personal checks, credit cards, and bank drafts) is the most popular type of charitable gift the UACCM Foundation receives. Checks should be made payable to the UACCM Foundation and mailed with this Letter of Intent to the UACCM Development Office at, 1537 University BLVD, Morrilton, AR 72110.

If you wish to make a cash gift online, click here to fill out our donation form complete your payment information through our secure online payment system (Paypal). All gifts will be acknowledged by a receipt from the UACCM Foundation.

If you itemize deductions on your federal tax return, you may claim an outright gift of cash as a charitable contribution up to an amount equal to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income. Any deduction not usable in the first year can be carried over for up to five additional years or until it is completely used, whichever is first. You may wish to consult your accountant or tax adviser to determine the tax benefit of your gift.

matching gifts

Did you know many corporations match personal donations with an equal or greater corporate contribution. Rules about the type of gifts that companies will match (cash, stock, property) vary.

To initiate a matching gift, complete your company's matching gift form and send it along with your gift to the UACCM Foundation. UACCM will complete the form, certifying that it has received your gift and is eligible to receive matching gifts under your company's guidelines. We will then forward the form to your company. After verifying the eligibility of the donor and UACCM, the company sends a check to us.

Check with your company's personnel department to see if your gift qualifies for a corporate match.

Honorary or Memorial gifts

A gift in memory or in honor of a colleague, relative or friend is a generous and thoughtful way to recognize a person's life and accomplishments.

When an honorary or memorial gift is made, UACCM notifies the honoree or others, and the gift is administered as the contributor specifies. To make an honorary gift, send a letter detailing the purpose of your gift as well as the name and address of the honoree. For memorial gifts, your letter should list the honoree's name and the name and address of those you want to be notified of the gift. Click here to make your honorary or memorial gift online today. You may also use the Letter of Intent form to make these types of gifts.

Letter of Intent

You may choose to make a one-time cash payment or a pledge to be paid out over a period of time consistent with your financial situation.

Securities

A transfer of securities (stocks or bonds), held long term, to the UACCM Foundation allows you to make a gift and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full fair market value of the securities. You pay no capital gains tax on your gift and neither does the Foundation.

Please contact UACCM for assistance when transferring assets.

Scholarships

Donors can establish annual or endowed scholarships to directly support student success. For more information on establishing a scholarship click here.
