The Power of a Simple Gift

Gift of Cash

One of the easiest and most common ways for you to support the University of Nebraska Foundation is with a gift of cash. Cash can be used to support our work in the form of:

An outright gift. By making a cash gift by check, credit card or setting up an automatic transfer from your bank account today, you enable the University of Nebraska Foundation to meet our most urgent needs and carry out our mission on a daily basis. You will have the opportunity to see your generosity in action and will also receive a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize on your taxes. To make an outright gift of cash, visit or contact a member of the development team at 402-458-1100.

A beneficiary designation. A bank account or certificate of deposit can be directed to the University of Nebraska Foundation once you, the account owner, pass away. You retain all rights to the funds during your lifetime. You remain in total control and are free to use the money in the account, change the beneficiary or close the account. To complete this gift, simply ask your financial institution for a change in beneficiary form. And if you need help completing the form, don't hesitate to call our gift planning team.

There are several other ways to make cash donations as part of the gift types below. To learn more, explore the links below.
