Donor-Advised Funds

Prior to making a grant recommendation to Graham, please ensure that your intentions meet any guidelines or requirements of your individual donor-advised fund as suggested by your fund’s managers. For additional information or questions, please Gift Administration and Business Data (773.702.2401). If needed when making a grant recommendation, provide the TIN (taxpayer identification number) 36-2177139. This TIN may be used for gifts supporting any part of the University, including the Graham School.

Under Internal Revenue Code regulations, a donor-advised fund cannot be used to satisfy a personal obligation (i.e., pledge). Doing so could subject you and the managers of your fund to penalties, including, but not limited to, excise taxes and disqualification of the fund as a tax exempt entity.

Matching Gifts

Many companies and corporate foundations match the gifts of their employees to nonprofit institutions such as Graham. Use our matching gift look-up tool to find out if your company has a matching gift policy. If a match is available, request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. If requested by your employer, use the TIN (taxpayer identification number) 36-2177139. If you have already sent your gift, it may not be too late to qualify for matching dollars this year. Send a completed form to: matching_gifts@uchicago.edu.
