University High School
2825 W. 116th Street
Carmel, IN 46032
Please provide your name and class year or parent year on your check; this is important as we need to have the correct name and address information for gift acknowledgment.
Stocks or Other Securities
Gifts of stock or appreciated securities can have a large tax benefit. You may take a federal income tax charitable deduction if you itemize your return. For appreciated securities held longer than one year, you can deduct the full fair market value of the gift and pay no taxes on any capital gain.
To make a gift of securities, please contact Adrianne Glidewell Smith, director of advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 317-733-4475, ext. 133.
It is important to advise the school of a stock transfer so we can properly recognize the gift when the proceeds are received.
If you would like to make a pledge to the U Fund, you may call, or download a pledge commitment form and send to the office of advancement. We record your pledge upon receipt and you will receive an acknowledgment from the school. All pledges must be paid by June 30 of the fiscal year.
Memorials and Honors
Each year, University High School receives many gifts in memory of or in honor of friends, classmates, teachers, parents, etc. When the school receives these gifts, the development office notifies the family member(s) of the deceased (in the case of memorial gifts) or the honoree (in the case of “in honor of” gifts).
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many corporations match gifts made by employees and their families to charitable institutions. Many match on a dollar-per-dollar basis, which can double or triple your gift. Please contact your company’s human resources office to obtain the proper matching gift forms.
Restricted and Unrestricted Gifts
You may designate gifts for a specific purpose or give an unrestricted gift. Unrestricted gifts allow the school to allocate resources according to changing needs.
