    Planned giving options allow you to plan for your future while also supporting UDS programming. Your financial advisor or attorney can guide you on ways that you can support UDS while minimizing your tax liabilities.

    Giving a gift of publicly traded stock can often provide significant tax benefits. Contact your financial advisor to determine if donating your stock to UDS is the right option for you. We can assist you with the transfer process.

  • Matching Gifts

    Many businesses offer corporate matching gift programs, giving employees an opportunity to increase the impact of their gifts. Contact your human resources department to see if your company has a matching gift program and how you can participate.
