Endowments/Naming Opportunities

The UA Department of Family & Community Medicine would like to create endowments for:

  • American Indian Youth Wellness Camp
  • ArtWorks
  • Mobile Health Program

Each endowment would be a permanent fund in which the principal is invested and only the annual interest income is available for use to support the program or purpose you select.

As the investment fund grows (or with additional contributions to the principal by donors), the annual income also grows. With a strong endowment base of support, you can help our programs maintain a consistent and long-term standard of excellence despite economic fluctuations. Endowments create a lasting legacy and positively impact participants, students and faculty.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities and closely held stock can be beneficial both to you and Family & Community Medicine. Check with your tax professional regarding income tax deductions, which may be equal to the fair market value of the securities, as well as reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes. Gifts of stock and mutual funds are coordinated by the UA Foundation. Proceeds from the sale of these assets benefit Family & Community Medicine and may be directed to any area or program you.

For UA Employees

UA Cares makes giving easy through payroll deduction.
