How Do I Make A Gift?

There are a number of ways to maximize your gift to benefit the UMaine hockey endowment.

  1. Many employers will match gifts to UMaine; this could triple or even quadruple the impact of your gift if it is already matched by the Savage Challenge.
  2. If you are a recent graduate or simply are not in a position to make a leadership gift, please consider a recurring monthly gift, made with your credit card.  Your gift of $25/mo., made over five years and matched by the Savage Challenge could mean $3,000 for UMaine Hockey!  If you can give $100/mo., you will qualify for membership within UMaine’s President’s Club and your generosity will mean $12,000 for UMaine Hockey!
  3. Making gifts of appreciated securities can benefit the UMaine hockey endowment and potentially have tax benefits to you as a donor.
  4. You can divide a leadership gift among several funds, such as endowment and preferred seating, or endowment and annual giving, to reflect your personal interests.  In either case, your gifts support UMaine Hockey and count toward your eligibility in the Stillwater Society and President’s Club.

We also encourage our hockey alumni and coaches to consider making a gift in memory or honor of someone – this can be a coach, teammate, or loved one (such as a parent, child, or sibling).  If you wish to make a gift of $10,000 or more, we welcome the opportunity to discuss naming options with you.
