Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name

Memorials and Tribute Gifts

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the University of Nebraska, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them or celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, while supporting our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will extend the legacy of your loved one and will make a difference.

An Example of How It Works

When John's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she was always speaking highly of her experiences at the University of Nebraska.

John decided to make a gift to the University of Nebraska Foundation in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at the University of Nebraska thanks to the gift, but John also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
