Matching Gifts

What is a matching gift?

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs and will match donations made by their employees or spouses to qualified institutions. Some companies will double or even triple the match amount. The University of Dallas qualifies for a number of companies’ matching gift programs.

How do I know if my employer has a matching gift program?

Contact the Human Resources department at your workplace to see if they participate in a matching gift program. If they do, let the HR department know and they will give you the necessary paperwork to complete.

How do I complete the complete the matching donation?

The HR department at your workplace will provide the paperwork for matching gifts. Follow the procedure according to the policy at your workplace and send in the form to the University of Dallas Office of Advancement. Our mailing address is:

Planned Gifts

Estates & Planned Gifts

Planned Giving is much more than just a will. Planned Giving encompasses a variety of charitable giving methods that allow you to express your personal values by integrating your charitable, family and financial goals. Our Director will help you discover how careful planning will allow you to:

  • Make a larger charitable gift than you thought possible;
  • Increase your current income;
  • Plan for the financial needs of your spouse or loved ones;
  • Provide inheritances for your heirs at a reduced tax cost;
  • Diversify your investment portfolio;
  • Receive income from your personal residence or farm;
  • Plan for the transfer of your business;
  • Leave a charitable legacy for future generations.

If you have any questions about Planned Giving, please contact Manager of Advancement Services David Smith at 972.721.4105.

Stocks & Securities

Stocks & Securities

It is often to your advantage to contribute long-term appreciated securities directly to UD rather than selling them and donating the proceeds of the sale. Why? You can often claim the full market value of donated shares as a charitable deduction on your income tax and avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in the value of your shares given to UD. If you have questions, you should consult with your financial advisory.

Transferring Stocks & Securities to UD

If a bank, trust, or brokerage house holds your stock certificates:
You, your trust officer, or your broker should contact Manager of Advancement Services David Smith at 972-721-4105 or Let us know what is being given, and we will provide instructions on how to complete the transfer of shares.

If you hold the stock certificates yourself:
Mail the unsigned stock certificates and a completed stock power form in separate envelopes—and mailed at the same time—to:

David Smith, Manager of Advancement Services
University of Dallas
Office of Advancement
1845 E Northgate Dr
Irving, TX 75062-4736

We recommend that you use certified mail when sending both your certificates and executed stock power form. In one of the envelopes, please include a note indicating the designation of your gift.

If the stock is registered in more than one name, each person must sign the stock power form. Sign only your name(s) on the stock power form. UD will complete all the other information, including the guarantee of signature(s) when the stock certificate is being sent for transfer.

If you are giving more than one type of stock, please send a stock power form for each stock.
