Planned Giving

If you wish to give to UCA via stock transfer, please call us at 501-450-5288 as our bank information has recently changed.

The UCA Foundation offers a variety of methods to make a planned gift. Thinking about the future now is important to ensure your intentions are followed. Choose from one of the below options, or for additional information, contact Carolyn Ishee at cishee@uca.edu or (501) 852-2606.

Planned Giving Options

Those that have included the UCA Foundation as a benefactor of their estate or one of the many options of planned giving are members of the Doyne Society. Learn more about the Doyne Society here.

Stocks and Securities

Compared with donating cash or selling your appreciated stock and securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to increase your gift and your tax deduction by donating long-term appreciated stock, bonds and mutual funds directly to the UCA Foundation. Learn more about delivery instructions. Please email Chad Hearne at foundation@uca.edu or call (501) 450-5288 with any questions.

Real Estate

You may donate a house, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland or commercial property as a great gift.

Insurance

If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of it. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.

Unused Retirement Assets

Donating part or all of your unused retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan is an excellent way to make a gift.

Wills and Bequests

The University of Central Arkansas Foundation has made it easier than ever to create a bequest and legacy.
