Giving from Hong Kong

Donors subject to taxation in Hong Kong can make a single or reoccurring gift to UVA by utilizing the HK Foundation, a Hong Kong based charity. The foundation issues gift receipts for Hong Kong tax purposes. Alumni, parents, and friends can use the HK Foundation to suggest a grant to UVA either online (select “The Rector and Visitors of the University of Virginia” as the recipient) or offline with this form.  The gift will be received, processed, and then sent to whatever specific UVA-affiliated area or foundation the donor wishes. Chapel & York reviews gifts quarterly, so please note that the process could take several months for the funds to be received by UVA.

Giving from the United Kingdom

Donors living in the United Kingdom can make tax-advantaged gifts to UVA and specify a purpose or designation within the University by utilizing the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) American Donor Fund. By using the CAF American Donor Fund, donors may earn tax relief through the UK’s Gift Aid program. At the same time, UVA can receive Gift Aid that will increase the value of the donation.  The gift will be received, processed, and then sent to whatever UVA-affiliated area or foundation the donor wishes. Donors can suggest a one-time grant to UVA online or offline utilizing this gift form.

Real Estate

Real estate can be contributed as an outright gift or to finance a planned gift, such as a charitable trust. Available options include a retained life estate, which allows the donor to continue to use the property for a certain number of years or for the donor’s lifetime. Other arrangements offer special tax advantages and lifetime income.

Gifts of real estate, such as undeveloped land, a residence, a vacation home, a farm, or commercial property, should be arranged through the Office of Gift Planning and made through the University Real Estate Foundation. The University requires the donor to bear certain costs when making a real estate gift, such as an appraisal to determine the fair market value. Also, the University deducts transaction costs from the proceeds of the sale of the property, including the closing costs, title insurance, a survey (if needed), and any taxes due before the gift is completed.

For more information, consult the Office of Gift Planning at 1-800-688-9882 or giftplanning@virginia.edu

Bitcoin

Gifts of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are currently accepted by UVA through a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) at either Fidelity Charitable or National Philanthropic Trust (NPT). The paperwork to setup a DAF is simple and takes but a few minutes to complete. The minimum initial contribution to a DAF is $5,000 at Fidelity and $25,000 at NPT. If donating with Fidelity, please also include this form  with your application.

NOTE: In 2014, the IRS issued guidance that Bitcoin is to be treated as a property for federal tax purposes. More information can be found here. Given the IRS guidance that Bitcoin can be treated as property, donating appreciated Bitcoin offers tax benefits.

Donors should consult with a tax advisor to review their personal situation and tax law applicable at the time of the contribution.
