Office of Advancement

Tax receipts for gifts of cash, check, or credit card are issued within 48 hours of receipt.
STOCK AND SECURITIES Gifts of stock afford donors an opportunity to avoid capital gains taxes by transferring ownership of personally held stock to Utica College. Since UC is in the business of educating students, all stock gifts are liquidated upon receipt.
Gifts of stock receive a tax-receipt that is generated usually within 24 hours of the stock sale. The value of the stock gift is based on the average of the high and low on the date of sale.
GIFTS IN KIND Gifts in kind are gifts of real or tangible property such as equipment, materials, company products, land or inventory. These gifts add to the value of a Utica College education by strengthening our programs and improving our facilities, so that we can provide the best possible educational experience to our students.
Past gifts in kind have included the bronze bell in Bell Hall, a 40-foot yacht, sculptures, paintings, computers, and software.
Matching gifts provide a way for donors to double their dollars and have an even greater impact on students at Utica College. Many corporations will match the gifts of current or retired employees as well as spouses of employees and people holding positions on their board of directors.
Here's how it works:
- Obtain a matching gift form from your employer.
- Complete your portion of the matching gift form.
- Mail your gift and the matching gift form to Utica College.
To find out if your company matches gifts, check with your human resources office or contact Anthony Villanti, Executive Director of Development, at (315) 792-3144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
