The many ways to support us.

Annual Giving

Annual giving supports our "everyday needs." Annual gifts are used to help support students and faculty, expand the programs we offer alumni, and provide for guest lecturers and programs that enhance our School's service in the community. Your annual gifts can be designated to support the students, faculty, or a specific program within the School. Large or small, it's your participation that counts!

Endowed Funds

A gift of $30,000 or more creates an endowed fund within the University of Memphis Foundation. The principal of the fund is preserved and only the income from the fund is used to support the specified program or activity within the School. Through endowed funds, you can support our academic programs, establish faculty professorships, and create graduate student assistantships.

Bequest or Planned Gift

Designating all, or a portion, of your estate to the School through a bequest or deferred gift commitment is another way to significantly impact the work of the School and leave a lasting legacy of your commitment to education. Bequests and planned gifts can provide significant estate, capital gains and income tax deductions, as well as life income opportunities. For more information on making your planned gift to the School, please contact Wesley LaRue, Director of Planned Giving, at 901.678.3468
