Endowments are gifts in perpetuity and can allow Voces to live on.

The investment level for an endowed excellence fund starts at $25,000, which can be pledged over 5 years. The original gift is permanently invested, and the annual earnings from that investment support Voces.

This type of endowment can support everything from travel and video production to student internships giving the Voces director flexibility to answer the needs of the center.

Here are some ways to support Voces that can potentially mitigate taxes or provide income for life.

-Designate UT and Voces in your will or trust – requires a revocable Estate Intention Letter (EIL) so the university can document the intention for your gift

-Appreciated Stock – if held over a year can provide a tax deduction and avoid capital gains tax

-Charitable Gift Annuities – if you are 55+ you can transfer cash or appreciated securities to Voces through the UT Foundation. You are paid a fixed amount (based on your age) annually for life

-IRA Beneficiary – Name UT as a beneficiary of your IRA or if you are over 70.5 years of age you can make a Qualified Charitable Donation up to $100,000 annually as part of your Required Minimum Distribution
