How to Give By Phone

Please call Advancement at (305) 284-1892.


Gifts of stock and bonds are welcomed at the University of Miami, however, these gifts require special planning and consultation with your professional financial advisor and the University of Miami staff. The University recommends that donors who have decided to make a gift of stock contact the Office of Development Services at (305) 284-4444. Transfer instructions will be provided.
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 credit from UM for the full fair market value of the shares, but the cost to you is only your original purchase price.

For more information about the benefits, visit our Estate and Gift Planning pages, or contact the Office of Estate and Gift Planning at (800) 529-6935. Cynthia Beamish, Executive Director, Planned Giving, Email:.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Gifts of Tangible Personal Property

The University of Miami is pleased to accept gifts of tangible personal property that address a specific need and comply with the mission and policies of the University. Beginning with donations of land, computer software, equipment, simulators, and clinical supplies, the School of Nursing and Health Studies has been strengthened by non-cash contributions throughout its 62-year history. Because of the unique circumstances surrounding gifts of personal property, this process is inevitably much longer and more complex than it is for other contributions to UM. Donors are encouraged to call the School of Nursing and Health Studies Advancement Office at (305) 284-1892 to discuss a possible gift.

Matching Gifts

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 or ask one of our advancement staff if your gift may be doubled through a matching gift program.

To discuss charitable contribution opportunities, please call Advancement at (305) 284-1892.
