There are many ways to support the University of the Virgin Islands. Most donors make gifts and pledge payments by check, credit card, or automatic bank drafts. Others 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. Regardless of the way you make your gift, the University is committed to using these resources to enhance campus life.
Whether in the form of annual giving, endowment support, or funds for capital projects, outright gifts make an immediate impact on the University. The gift may be designated for any academic program, or left entirely unrestricted to give the University the greatest flexibility to direct funds where they are needed.
Annual gifts provide a constant stream of flexible income that can make the difference between a good education and a great one. These funds support increased student aid, the purchase of books, equipment, technology, and academic and athletic programming.UVI’s annual giving program raises private gifts on behalf of the University’s academic divisions and other areas such as Athletics, University Libraries, the Reichhold Center, and Student Affairs.

Benefiting the University community in perpetuity, endowment 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.
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. Matching gifts is quickly becoming an important source of funds for the University. They also are an increasingly important way for companies to allow employees to direct a portion of the monies earmarked for charitable contribution. Contact your human resources department to find out if your company will match your contribution to UVI.
