Ways to Give Wisely

You don't have to use cash to make a gift to Oxford University.


You can give appreciated securities instead, using an asset that cost you less than the tax deduction you'll get for it today.

You can make a substantial gift to us through a transfer of residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate.

You can give us an interest in a closely-held or family business.

You can give us personal property like books, artwork or equipment, and secure a charitable income tax deduction.


You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.


Your bequest ensures that we can meet our goals tomorrow -- without affecting your assets today.

We offer a wise charitable alternative to the double taxation that awaits your retirement plan in your estate.

You can turn surplus life insurance coverage into a charitable gift to Oxford University, or use a new policy to create an endowment from income instead of capital.


You can partner with Oxford University in your giving.


Make a gift to our pooled life income fund, and receive both income back and the benefits of a charitable mutual fund.

Your gift can return income that helps you meet many family obligations with the most flexible gift plan available -- a charitable remainder unitrust.

You can combine flexible management of your gift and a predictable, fixed-income payout with a charitable remainder annuity trust.

You can give Oxford University your house through a retained life estate and continue to live there rent-free.

A part-gift/part-sale transaction called a charitable bargain sale gives you a charitable deduction and cash to purchase your next home.

You can increase your estate for your children while delivering years of income to Oxford University with a charitable lead trust.
