Make a unique gift

In-kind donations

Gifts through the University don’t need to be financial to make a difference. Over the years, many donors have made in-kind donations that have supported our students and researchers in generous, and often unique, ways.

In-kind donations can tell important stories or inspire new ideas. Or they may open up new opportunities for teaching and research through their exceptional value.

We are very grateful for every donation and the role your generosity plays in supporting our students and researchers to achieve their goals.

If you would like to discuss donating a gift in-kind such as an exceptional cultural gift, an important scientific collection, iconic art or marketable property, please contact the Office of Alumni and Philanthropy:
