Types of Gifts

Support for UNE comes in many forms. By donating to UNE, you are investing in the future. Every gift to the University opens doors for deserving students and paves the way for groundbreaking discoveries.

Unrestricted gifts

Unrestricted gifts are among the most valuable to UNE, because they allow the university to allocate funds wherever the need is greatest, and to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise. Your unrestricted contribution may be used to support costs associated with financial aid, innovations in teaching, research equipment, facilities, and much more.

Directed gifts

Directed gifts allow you to designate your gift to a specific school or program, or a priority area at the university. When you make a directed gift to UNE, you enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a program that is personally meaningful to you.

You also have the option of designating your gift for current use or for endowment. Current-use gifts provide funds and flexibility over the short term, whereas endowment gifts provide security over the long term by expanding the university’s permanent financial base and creating a predictable source of future income.
