Year End Campaign

Public radio supporters are very loyal.  As we come to the end of the year, you may want to make a year end contribution to Alabama Public Radio.   Please check to see if your employer matches gifts to Alabama Public Radio at this link.

  • To have your contribution apply to your 2018 taxes, you must make your payment prior to midnight December 31, 2018. 
  • If you mail a check, please have the check dated on or before December 31, 2108 and the envelope postmarked on or before December 31, 2018.   You can mail the checks to:

The University of Alabama
Alabama Public Radio
Box 870370
Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0370

  • You may have the desire to make a gift of stock.  Stock transfers received on or before the close of the market on December 31, 2018, will be credited for 2018. To ensure proper gift credit to you, please notify us in advance when you are ready to make a transfer. For more information regarding stock transfer, please visit UA's Gifts of Secruities page. Please note on the transfer to apply the funds to the Alabama Public Radio account.  Please send a note to jeff.deneen@apr.org so we can be sure your transfer is properly accredited.
  • You can make a gift via IRA Charitable Rollover.  The charitable IRA rollover, also called a qualified charitable distribution, was made permanent in 2015.  Since 2006, many UA donors age 70 ½ or older have used this option to make qualifying charitable gifts that were excluded from taxable income and counted toward their required minimum distribution (RMD).  To qualify, gifts must be disbursed directly from the IRA provider to The University of Alabama and meet certain other requirements.  This provision applies to people age 70 ½ or older at the time the transfer is completed.  Please note that an individual taxpayer’s total charitable IRA rollover gifts cannot exceed $100,000 per tax year.  We encourage you to check with your financial advisors about the best ways for you to take advantage of this opportunity as you consider gifts to the University and other charitable interests that are important to you. It is simple to make a transfer. Contact your account administrator to request a check be delivered to the address below. Envelopes must be postmarked no later than December 31, 2018.
