Ways to Give

There are many ways to make a gift to the School of Nursing. Some have added benefits for the donor depending on his or her age, type of asset contributed, and the form of gift selected. The school works with each donor to establish the most beneficial gift for the donor, for the donor's family, and for the nursing school.

Gifts to the school are tax deductible, but please contact your tax advisor regarding the circumstances of your particular contribution.

Please review our contribution programs and consider where you can best make a personal impact on nursing education:

Gifts of securities afford donors an attractive means of giving to The University of Texas School of Nursing at Houston. Donors receive a tax deduction for the market value of the securities, computed on the day of transfer, while avoiding payment of capital gains on the appreciated value of the stock. If the securities are held by your bank or broker, it is usually best to transfer them electronically via the Depository Trust Company (DTC) system.

First, contact our office, at (713) 500-2006 and provide the following information:

  • Your name and address
  • The name and ticker symbol of the security
  • The number of shares
  • The purpose of your gift

We will provide you or your broker with the banking account information needed to complete the transfer. Donors of stock are encouraged to consult their brokers or advisers.

Matching Gifts

Many employers match the gifts their employees make to the School of Nursing. Please check with your employer's Human Resources Department to find out if your company will match your gift, and to get the proper form to submit when making your gift to The University of Texas School of Nursing at Houston.

Planned Gifts

A planned gift is structured and integrates sound personal, financial, and estate-planning concepts with the donor's plans for lifetime or testamentary giving. Planned gifts can increase current income for the donor or others, reduce the donor's income tax, and enable the donor to avoid capital gains tax and pass assets to his or her family at a reduced tax cost, while making a contribution to the college. We can assist in helping you make planned gifts that suit you and your family's needs.
