Gift Processing Home

A unit of the University of Maine Foundation, Gift Processing provides the service of processing all university contributions including gifts, pledges, and pledge payments. The unit receives, records, and legally receipts gifts of all forms – monetary and in-kind. All donations are recorded to the the university’s fundraising database (Advance).

Our goal is to ensure that donations are in compliance with university policies and federal regulations, are in accordance with donor intent, and that security and confidentiality is maintained in the processing of all records.


Note – When funds are to be directed to a chartfield string or designation intended for gifts, whether the funds are gifts or non-gifts, you must submit the deposit to Gift Processing with a completed Standard Gift Transmittal Form rather than to the Bursar’s Office. Please contact Gift Processing if you have questions or need assistance.

More information is available within the pages of this site. In addition to general gift information, references, guides, forms, and information regarding employee money-handling responsibilities is provided. Please contact Gift Processing with specific questions and concerns.

None of the information on this website should be considered legal or financial advice. We encourage you to consult with your own legal counsel or financial/tax advisor before deciding whether or not to proceed with a gift or change to your estate plan.
