Welcome Alumni and Friends
There are many ways to invest in the future of the Department of Management. Our Development staff will work with you to ensure that your gift meets your goals and financial needs while also benefiting the college. Your gift, no matter the amount, will help ensure that the college will continue to be a strong educational asset for our students, and a vital resource for our community.
How to Give by Mail
If you would like to mail us your gift, please make your check payable to the University of Tennessee and mail it, along with the form attached, to the Development Office. Be sure to indicate Management Department Enrichment Endowment in the memo line. You may also charge your gift to your credit card by using this form.
How to give online using a credit card
Gifts by credit card can be made using our on-line giving site. This is a fast, safe and secure way of investing in the college. The University accepts Visa, Mastercard and Discover. Please ensure that the Management Department Enrichment Fund is selected in the "fund or endowment" drop down menu.
Gifts of stocks and bonds are welcomed at the University of Tennessee; however these gifts require special planning. Please contact the CBA Development Office at (865)974-6083 for more information and indicate that you would like to give to the Management Department Enrichment Endowment.
Gifts of appreciated securities typically carry benefits not associated with gifts made by check, cash or credit card:
- You avoid capital gains tax. Any gain is taxable if you sell stock or mutual fund shares yourself, but not if you transfer ownership to the University.
- Your charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes is based on the full, fair market value of the shares on the date the gift is made.
- You receive gift credit for the full fair market value of the shares, but the cost to you is only your original purchase price.
Many companies provide matching gifts for their employees as part of their employee benefit packages. If you plan to make a gift, check with your employer to see if they participate in a matching gift program. This is an easy way to enhance the impact made by your gift.
