Please include UDM in your year-end philanthropy plans. The tax laws intentionally encourage charitable giving. Because of the income tax charitable deduction, individuals who make their gifts by December 31 and itemize can significantly reduce their income taxes for 2006.
Also, check with your financial advisor about new opportunities and tax benefits of transferring distributions directly from your IRA to make a contribution to UDM. See the UDM giving site.
Listen to special UDM presentations via UDMcasts. Recent recordings include innovation expert Larry Keeley and the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, The Very Reverend Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, S.J.
UDM will undergo its 10-year institutional accreditation visit by the North Central Association (NCA), Jan. 29 - 31, 2007. Find out more.
