Ways to Give
 
American Express, Visa, MasterCard or Discover are accepted on the University of Arizona Foundation's secure site. Follow the giving links on the Giving Impact page to select the giving priority of your choice. You will receive an e-mail confirmation of your gift, followed by a printed acknowledgement by mail. You can also arrange for a multi-year pledge or a recurring gift.
 
Gifts of Stock and Securities
Gifts of appreciated assets, rather than cash, can be made to Steward Observatory and may provide special tax advantages to you, the donor. Giving appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds can allow for the avoidance of capital gains taxes and, in most cases, a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the donation. To learn more about these types of gifts, please contact Ruth McCutcheon, Director of Development, 520-621-7890 or mccutcheon@email.arizona.edu.
 
Matching Gifts
Your employer or your spouse's employer may offer a program that matches charitable gifts. Matching gifts can double or even triple your gift to the Steward Observatory. To initiate a matching gift, complete your and/or your spouse's employer's matching gift form and send it along with your donation.
 
 
Planned Gifts
Many donors help to secure the future strength of Steward Observatory by remembering Steward Observatory in their estate plans. There are many easy giving options from which you can choose—strategies that can be beneficial to you, as well as to Steward Observatory. To learn more about these types of gifts please contact Ruth McCutcheon, Director of Development, 520-621-7890 or mccutcheon@email.arizona.edu.
