Ways to Give

Graduates of the College of Social Work will spend their careers working to improve the lives of other people. We thank you for the financial support that makes this quality education possible. Please know that every dollar makes a difference in many lives.

Make a Gift or Make a Pledge
Most donations are one-time gifts or pledges to be paid in several smaller gifts. Contributions can be delivered in person, mailed to the College, or submitted online through our online giving form. (Select “Colleges” from the University Area drop-down menu, then select “Social Work, College of” from the Designation drop-down menu.) Larger gifts may entitle you to additional donor privileges.

Memorial and Honor Gifts
Making a gift in memory of a loved one or to honor a colleague acknowledges the contributions others have made to you and to your community. If you make a gift in memory or in honor of someone, the individual or their family will be notified of this special recognition.

Planned Gifts
Most people have a larger estate than they realize. Consider making a planned gift by writing the College of Social Work into your will or creating a Charitable Remainder Trust. To determine the planned gift that best suits you, try the University’s Build Your Gift tool by clicking here. (Keep in mind that many planned gift options come with special tax benefits.)

Matching Gifts from Employers
Many companies will match the gifts their employees make to nonprofits like the University of Utah. That means your gift of $50 can become a gift of $100! Not sure if your employer has a matching gifts program? Talk to your human resources department or click here to search our database.

Securities and Property
If you would like to help further our mission with a gift of appreciated securities or property, you might benefit from significant tax breaks while the College of Social Work benefits from your generous contribution. Please contact Lisa Himonas for more information (801-587-8387 or

In-Kind Gifts
Some people prefer to make gifts of tangible items. Whether it’s new computers for our remodeled computer lab or artwork for the observation rooms of our clinical training suites, we are happy to accept this type of gift.

Corporations and Foundations
We seek gifts from corporations and foundations throughout the year and do our best to express our gratitude for their far-reaching support.
