Planned giving can be a desirable way for donors to maximize support of their family and top priority charitable interests. There are a number of creative ways to support the University of the Arts in which you, your loved ones and UArts all benefit at the same time! Planned giving also allows a donor to make a more substantial donation because the techniques provide greater flexibility in making the gift.

Planned gifts are deferred gifts. There are many types of assets that can be used to fund a charitable gift to UArts. These include cash, appreciated securities, real estate, personal property, business interests, IRAs/Retirement Plans, life insurance and other assets. Please consult with a financial or tax advisor to ensure your wishes are provided for in your estate and financial planning.

Planned gifts help ensure the future of UArts!

Inquiries are confidential and carry no obligations. For more information or to notify us that you have already included UArts in your estate plans, please contact Josie Burri, Vice President for Advancement, by calling 212-717-6140 or emailing
