Whether you are planning a gift for the present or the future, we are here to help you follow your passion and secure a lasting impact. All gifts allow UK Libraries to better support our users and build toward our strategic goals. Many gifts, too, confer tax benefits or income opportunities to donors. 


Endowments are gifts that keep on giving. By establishing an endowment, you can provide for UK Libraries in perpetuity and ensure that your legacy is felt by generations of students and faculty. 


Gifts of shares of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds can be put to use by UK Libraries on an immediate basis while also securing tax benefits for yourself and your family.

Real Estate

UK Libraries encourages gifts of real estate and other personal property, including residential, commercial, and industrial properties, undeveloped land, and ownership interests.

IRA Rollovers

Donors above 70.5 years in age are able to make direct transfers of up to $100,000 from their IRA accounts to UK Libraries without having to pay income tax.

Life Income Gifts

Through charitable remainder trusts and gift annuities, you can provide a generous gift to UK Libraries while also securing a source of income for yourself or your family.

Legacy Giving

We can help you arrange bequests or beneficiary designations for your will or living trust, and you can feel secure in the knowledge that future generations will benefit from your legacy.
