The easiest and most common way to give to AZPM is through a tax deductible gift of cash, usually made by check. However, gifts can take many forms. Here are a few options:
Gifts of real estate are sold quickly and converted into cash or used directly in connection with an existing University program. All real estate gifted to The University of Arizona Foundation for the benefit of AZPM is on the market for sale.
The sale of Foundation real estate differs from University-owned properties because Foundation properties can be listed with a broker and do not require an auction to confirm or close the sale.
Types of Accepted Real Estate:
Improved property with mortgages can be accepted if the loan is 50% or less of the appraised value and can be sold quickly.
This is what happens after you express an interest in making a real estate gift:

The simplest and most efficient way to make a gift is to instruct your broker or banker to transfer the security/IRA to The University of Arizona Foundation for the benefit of Arizona Public Media.

Endowments are permanent funds in which the principal is held in perpetuity and only the investment income is expended annually (payout).
Endowment gifts provide long-term sources of funding for the Arizona Public Media. Endowed funds support activities not just for one year, or even one generation, but forever. Endowment funds are invested prudently to ensure they can sustain current and future needs.
An endowed fund is established through a minimum gift of cash or stock totaling $25,000. Endowed funds also may be created through a number of gift planning vehicles.
Endowments can be very specifically focused or they can be generally designated for the most critical needs.
An endowment can be named in honor of an individual, colleague, or family member, as well as an organization, foundation or corporation.
Many employers match charitable contributions made by their employees, employees’ spouses or retirees. Employer matching instantly amplifies the impact of your gift.
Employers’ matching criteria and procedures differ. Please inquire with your company’s human resources office whether charitable gift matching is provided.
