What are the methods for giving?

These gifts can provide support for a variety of needs such as establishing scholarships or purchasing equipment.

There are many easy, creative and tax-wise ways current gifts can be made to UALR.

  • Cash/Check
  • Credit Card
  • Securities
  • Real Estate
  • Personal Property
  • Life Insurance

Deferred gifts are a means of achieving charitable and personal financial goals. These types of gifts may include gifts through wills, insurance policies, and retirement plans, or life income gifts such as gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. Many deferred gifts offer substantial financial and tax saving benefits, often complementing the donor’s retirement goals and overall estate plans.

Why is the Campus Campaign so important?

Contributions from faculty and staff provide funding for programs, departments and scholarships at UALR. Equally as important is the strong message this appeal sends to those outside the University, announcing to alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, and community partners that we are Leading the Way and that UALR truly is an institution worthy of support.
