Giving

Private support plays a central role in helping the School to teach, inspire, and lead in the field of architecture and architectural education. Many of our alumni & friends have made contributions to the school over the years. Your gift to the School of Architecture can be used to support research and travel scholarships; student activities; alumni events; computer lab; faculty development; distinguished/visiting lecture program; Asia Pacific Architecture Symposium; library, gallery, newsletter and outreach activities; and in some way have assisted every facet of the school's education and service programs. There are many ways to support the School.

Many offer tax or estate-planning advantages that may be useful to donors.




OUTRIGHT GIFTS

An outright gift is a direct transfer of an asset to archawai‘i. Outright gifts may be made with cash, securities, stock, real estate and personal property. An outright gift immediately benefits the School.

MEMORIAL AND HONORARY GIFTS

A gift in memory of someone is a powerful way to perpetuate the values and ideals that guided someone's life, to continue even after they have passed. Honorary gifts commemorate a significant event or someone who is still alive.

ESTATE AND PLANNED GIVING

In addition to outright giving, "planned giving" is an exciting way to fulfill philanthropic goals, because a "planned gift" provides not only a gift in support of archawai'i but also multiple financial and tax benefits to the donor and his or her family.

BEQUESTS

You can make a testamentary gift through your Will or Revocable Living Trust by designating a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount, the rest and residue of your estate, or a combination of these options.


BENEFICIARY DESIGNATION

You can make the UH Foundation, for the benefit of the School of Architecture, the beneficiary of a life insurance policy or a qualified retirement plan such as an IRA, a 401(k), or a 403(b).

CHARITABLE GIFT ANNUITY OR REMAINDER TRUST

You can make a gift of cash, appreciated securities, or in exchange for a life-income plan such as a Charitable Gift Annuity, deferred payment Charitable Gift Annuity, or Charitable Remainder Trust. The significant benefit here is that you receive lifetime income, an income tax deduction, and capital gains savings (if applicable).

OUTRIGHT AND DEFERRED GIFT COMBINATION

You can give a combination of an outright gift and a deferred gift. This enables you to start or fully endow a program or scholarship during your lifetime, and make a provision in your Will or Revocable Living Trust, or through a life-income plan, to add significantly to the endowment after you pass away.
