Financial Tools & Your Estate


Plan Your Giving

Invest in the future of the University of Wyoming. Our team works closely and confidentially with you and your legal, tax, and other advisers to come up with a plan that meets your personal and financial goals.

Gift Planning



Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund is a charitable giving account that provides an immediate tax benefit. It allows you to fulfill your generosity by granting funds to charities of your choice. It's a great way to manage your giving to UW and other charities simply and efficiently. 

DAF Tool




The IRS requires traditional IRA-holders 70 1/2 or older to withdraw money from their IRAs. Rather than income, a donation to UW is 100% tax free, even if you don't itemize (a Qualified Charitable Distribution). Thanks to our partnership with FreeWill, the gift is quick and hassle-free.




Other Tools

There are a lot of options that will help you satisfy your charitable giving goals while also offering tax benefits and benefiting your family. Here's a list of ways you can structure your estate.

Financial Tools


What You Can Give



Giving cash has an immediate impact on students at the University of Wyoming and the programs and faculty that support them. The easiest way to donate is by giving online. You can designate your area of support.

Give Now




When you donate stock to UW, you’ll get a tax deduction for the full market value. And because you are donating stock, you may be able to give more and reduce future capital gains and it's tax-efficient.

Transferring Securities



Retirement/Life Ins.

Giving through your retirement plan or life insurance is easy.  You can designate UW as a beneficiary, either as sole beneficiary, a dollar amount, or a percentage of assets.

Designating Beneficiaries

Real Estate
