Cash/Credit Card/PayPal Gifts

Checks and credit card payments are an easy way to give. Gifts to support UMaine may allow you to take a charitable deduction on your income tax return.

When making a gift with a check, please do the following:

  • Make the check payable to “University of Maine Foundation“.
  • Indicate the fund name or area of support on the memo line of the check or include a letter of instruction stating the fund you wish to support or how you wish the gift to be used.
  • Please send check to:

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

Making a gift using a credit card/PayPal:

Gifts can be made with your Visa, Mastercard or American Express card. To make a credit card gift, you may visit our Online Giving Page or call our office at 207.581.5100 or 1.800.982.8503.

We are also happy to accept gifts through PayPal on our Online Giving Page.

Making a gift through wire transfer:

Cash may be wired directly from your brokerage account to the Foundation. Please call the Foundation office at 207.581.5100 or 1.800.982.8503 for transfer instructions.

Be sure to keep acknowledgements and other records of your gifts to assure that you can use your deductions. This is especially imporant for gifts of $250 or more. Donors are advised to discuss the potential benefits and consequences of making charitable gifts with an attorney, financial, or tax advisor.
