Investment Gifts & Planned Gifts

UCS accepts stock, stock options, and other investments. You can receive a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made on a donation of stock you have owned for more than one year.

In addition to realizing substantial tax benefits, planned giving is a means to accomplish both your personal financial and charitable giving goals. Through a planned gift, you can maximize the personal financial benefits of philanthropy and make a larger gift than you may have thought possible.

For any questions, please contact Beth Standring by phone at 216.939.8441 ext. 177 or by email at

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor a matching gift program and will match charitable donations made by their employees. If your company offers a matching gift program, please request a matching gift form from them and send the completed form along with your gift to UCS.
