Other Ways to Give
There are many ways to give to the university through the University of Nebraska Foundation.
You can give tangible personal property or commercial, residential or agricultural real estate. You can deed property, such as your home as well as give securities—stocks, bonds or mutual funds. Another giving option is a retained life estate.
Tangible personal property is any property, other than land and buildings, that can be seen or touched. It includes furniture, books, jewelry, paintings, coins, sculptures, cars, even grain or livestock. The items most commonly donated to the University are quilts, books and artwork.
Farmland values have increased dramatically in recent months. If this land were to be sold, the land owner could incur significant capital gains tax. Donating the land maximizes the impact of giving.
