Gifting Instructions

There are many ways to support the University of the Virgin Islands. Many donors take advantage of tax savings that come from giving appreciated stocks, shares of mutual funds, or real estate. Donors contribute gifts-in-kind, such as works of art, antique furnishings, or rare books and manuscripts for the library. You can magnify the impact of your gift by paying off your pledge commitment over time. Regardless of the way you make your gift, the University is committed to using these resources to enhance campus life. As part of this commitment the UVI Board of Trustees adopted our current Gift Acceptance Policy.

Annual Fund 

Annual gifts provide a constant stream of flexible income that can make the difference between a good education and a great one. This fund supports student aid, books, equipment, technology, and academic and athletic programs. Make a donation today; give online now! 

Endowed Gifts

Benefiting the University community in perpetuity, endowed gifts are invested to generate a steady stream of income for professorships, scholarships, fellowships, lectureships, and many other purposes. Donors may also create unrestricted endowments, which produce resources that can be used where the need is greatest.

Matching Gifts

Many companies encourage their employees to make charitable contributions by matching their philanthropic support. At UVI, donors receive credit for their employers' matching gifts. The impact of corporate matching support can be enormous. Contact your human resource department to find out if your company will match your contribution to UVI.

Payroll Deductions

University of the Virgin Islands and Virgin Islands Government employees can sign up for payroll deduction (GVI Payroll Deduction Form).
