Donors may complete the online gift form to make a donation by charging a credit card.

By Mail – mail donations to:

University of Maine Foundation
Buchanan Alumni House
Two Alumni Place
Orono, ME 04469-5792

What types of gifts are accepted by the University?

Exception: The value of a person’s or organization’s time or service is not considered a charitable contribution, regardless of whether the individual assists as a volunteer or as a professional providing a specialized service (e.g., accounting, legal work, consulting or printing).4

Note: Because federal guidelines regarding gift-in-kind donations are complex, please contact the Gift Processing Department when such donations are considered or initiated.

Can donations be made in memory or in honor of someone?

Yes. The university accepts memorial and honorary donations.

Donations should be sent directly from the donor to:

University of Maine Foundation
Buchanan Alumni House
Two Alumni Place
Orono, ME 04469-5792

A note on or accompanying the check stating “in memory of” or “in honor of” and the person’s name is enough to indicate that the donation is a memorial or honorary donation. Memorial and honorary donations may also be made using the university’s online giving website at www.umaine.edu/give. A field is provided to indicate the name of the person to be memorialized or honored.

The University of Maine Foundation is responsible for sending notices of all memorial and honorary donations. These notifications include the donors’ names, their mailing addresses, and the allocation in which each memorial or honorary donation was made. Because of privacy standards, donation values are never disclosed in these notifications.

If you are interested in suggesting memorial or honorary donations to benefit the University of Maine in an obituary or posting, please contact the Gift Processing Department.
