Artificial Intelligence – the Real Deal
Yu Zhang is the first to admit that artificial intelligence can be very exciting in the movies, but what makes it attractive to her is how scientists are using computers and artificial intelligence to simulate and study real world social trends.
Ways to Give
Ways to Give:
- By check (payable to Trinity University and mailed to One Trinity Place #49, San Antonio, Texas 78212-7200)
- Toll-Free 888-TU-DONOR (883-6667)
- Through payroll deduction (Trinity University employees only)
- With a matching gift from your or your spouse's employer.
- By automatic cash transfer (Arranged through your personal bank or financial services provider)
Long-term, appreciated stocks and securities are almost always an excellent way to provide financial support. They can be used to support the Trinity Fund or in establishing planned giving arrangements and provide a double benefit to you--a current income tax deduction and avoidance of capital gains taxes.
Real estate gifts, such as single-family homes, vacation property, condominiums, office buildings, vacant lots and farms and ranches, are an excellent way to support the mission of Trinity University as well as to provide important benefits to you and your family. You can use real estate to make an outright gift, establish a retained life estate or to set up a charitable remainder unitrust to pay you an income for life. You can obtain a charitable income tax deduction and avoid capital gains taxes. The minimum value of a real estate gift is $25,000.
Tangible Personal Property
For many donors, tangible personal property, such as art, antiques or collectibles, represents some of their most valuable assets with which to make charitable gifts. Because the IRS rules for gifts of tangible personal property are quite different than those for gifts of cash or other types of property, we encourage you to contact us if you are interested in making such a gift.
Fiscal year: June 1 through May 31
Gifts and payments on pledges will be counted in the fiscal year in which they are received. Your annual Trinity Fund gift must be received before May 31 in order to be counted in a specific giving club within that fiscal year.
Jim Dicke II '68 "To have the best quality students, you must have the best quality faculty and the best facilities. You need the endowment and the fiscal discipline to be in the black every year. I encourage other alumni to get involved with Trinity and be financially supportive in any way they can."
