Ways to Give

Cash Gifts

Cash is a great way to give and can be put to immediate use by the university.


Dixie State accepts gifts relevant to the university which further the work of departments and programs. These non-monetary donations constitute another important avenue of DSU support and are tax deductible

Gifts of Securities, Stocks and Bonds

These gifts provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to DSU before they are sold. You may find that this will create an income tax deduction as well as help avoid taxes that would have been due on their sale.

Gifts of Real Estate and Personal Property

Gifts of real estate are welcome and, usually, entitle donors to an income tax deduction. These gifts include personal residences, second homes, income property, and vacant land.

Memorial Gifts

You may make a memorial gift to DSU in honor of a family member or friend, or to commemorate a significant event in your life.

Amazon Shopping

Dixie State University invites those of you who shop online at Amazon to participate in the Amazon Smile program. By purchasing Amazon your orders through and selecting Dixie State University as the nonprofit recipient, the Amazon Corporation will donate .5% of the price of all eligible purchases to DSU. Participating in this program is totally free for users. Amazon makes the donation on your behalf and DSU never knows what you bought. This is a totally voluntary option for personal accounts. And anyone can designate DSU as the nonprofit recipient, so feel free to share this information or the tutorial with friends and family. This program works for business accounts as well. So department purchasers, please be sure to make Amazon purchases through the website. All funds provided by Amazon will be used for student scholarships. The scholarship account will be jointly administered by the DSU Staff Association and the Faculty Senate. It's very easy to sign up. Follow this 5 minute tutorial to learn more.
