Donors interested in providing a major contribution to the Zilber School of Public Health often chose to make a multi-year commitment rather than a one time gift. Major gift pledges can be payable over 2 to 5 years and may establish an endowed fund or help support current needs in the school. Naming opportunities may also be available.

Matching Gifts

Check to see if you work for a company that will match your gift.

Memorials & Honorariums

Gifts in memory or in honor of a relative or friend are a generous and thoughtful way to recognize a person's life and accomplishments. When an honorary or memorial gift is made, the UWM Foundation will notify the honoree or next of kin, and the gift is administered as specified by the donor.

Appreciated Securities

Transferring stocks, bonds, treasuries, and mutual funds, held long term, to the UWM Foundation for the Zilber School of Public Health allows you to make a gift and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full market value of the securities. You may also avoid paying capital gains tax on your appreciated gift.

Planned Gifts

Designating a planned gift to the Zilber School of Public Health enables you to realize your long-term charitable goals and make a significant impact on the university without making a current gift of cash or securities. A bequest in your will, annuities, trusts, and investment income contributions are some common means of gift planning. Please consider using the following language, or contact me to discuss:

“I bequeath ____ to the UWM Foundation, Inc. for the benefit of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Zilber School of Public Health.I would like my gift to be used to support (fellowships, general scholarship, unrestricted, etc.) within the Zilber School of Public Health.”

UWM Gives to UWM

If you are a current member of the UWM faculty or staff, you will be invited each spring to consider giving back to the University through this internal annual campaign. By making a financial gift via the UWM Gives to UWM campaign, faculty and staff can directly support the Zilber School of Public Health. The effect of each and every gift is significant. Donations strengthen academic programs and enhance the lives of the students who receive a degree from the School.
