Frequently Asked Questions

Is my gift tax-deductible?
Gifts and pledges are tax-deductible. Gifts are managed by the University of Maryland College Park Foundation, which will mail receipts for all contributions it receives.

May I make a gift and spread it out over a period of time?
Gifts of $5,000 or more may be pledged up front and paid over a maximum five-year term.

May I make a gift to recognize or memorialize someone?
Yes, you can make your gift in recognition of a special loved one, friend, colleague, or to memorialize someone who is no longer with us. You are able to memorialize a loved one in perpetuity by establishing an endowed fund such as a scholarship or professorship.
