Types of Gifts


Stay in touch with Dixie State University by giving to the annual fund. These funds are used to provide scholarships or support a particular program or project, as you indicate. Support from our alumni and friends has a direct impact on the lives of our students.

Every gift counts no matter the size. Your gifts impact the future!


As DSU expands and plans for the future, it must continually reinvest in facilities which support teaching and learning. Capital gifts are to upgrade existing buildings, build new structures, acquire land, enhance campus landscaping, and enrich the DSU experience for the university community.


Establishing a permanent endowment is a gift that keeps on giving. Endowment gifts expand the university’s permanent financial base and create a source of future income for student scholarships, faculty positions, building improvement and academic and athletic programs.


Deferred, or planned gifts, include a variety of options. These vehicles may increase your income, earn valuable income tax deductions and reduce estate taxes. Specific examples of planned gifts are:

  • Wills, Trusts, Bequests
  • Retirement Plans
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Life Insurance


Throughout the years, corporations and foundations have been very generous to DSU. Such collaborative partnerships provide support for the people and ideas that are the foundation of Dixie State University. Generous donations have been received to construct buildings, fund scholarships, and support our academic and athletic programs. We value this partnership and look forward to an ongoing relationship with the corporate and foundation world.


Remember to check with your company when you give a gift to Dixie State. Many companies offer matching gift programs that allow their employees to match, double or even triple their donation to DSU. Search below to find out if your company has a matching gift program.
