Your donations to UNB qualify for credits on your tax return because the University is a registered charitable organization. After you donate, we will mail you an official receipt for income tax purposes. If you are married, either spouse can claim the donation regardless of whose name is on the gift receipt. Donations of publicly traded securities carry additional tax benefits because donors will not be taxed on the capital gains.
