Ways to Give

At the University of New England we encourage donors to support those projects or funds that most appropriately reflect their philanthropic interests. To learn more about giving opportunities in your area of interest, please contact William Chance, Vice President for Institutional Advancement at (207) 221-4372.

When donating, please reference how you would like your gift to be applied (e.g. Annual Fund, construction project, endowment, etc.).

We accept donations in the following forms:


Gifts of Securities

Gifts of long-term or highly appreciated securities offer tax benefits on a charitable donation by avoiding capital gains taxes. To discuss this unique opportunity, contact Laura Gebhart, Director of Advancement Services, at (207) 221-4374 or lgebhart@une.edu. To arrange a transfer of stock, please contact UNE's Gift Acceptance Office at (207) 221-4374.

Matching Gifts

Many businesses and corporations will offer matching gifts for contributions that employees, retirees and their members make to nonprofit institutions. Please look into increasing your support without additional out-of-pocket expense by contacting your company's personnel office. You may refer to this list to find out if your company offers a matching gift program. To add your company to this list, please call the Advancement Services at (207) 221-4374.
