How to Give

An outright gift of cash, checks, securities, stocks, real estate, and personal property transfers immediately to University Liggett School from the donor to support the priority need of the school. Gifts are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes. Gifts can be made in honor or in memory of a special person, and University Liggett School will notify the honoree/family of your generosity. In addition, many alumni classes join together during major reunion years to make a "class gift" and support a special fundraising project.
