Specialized equipment to further cutting-edge research. A collection of one-of-a-kind maps or manuscripts to aid scholarly pursuits. A beautiful painting to adorn one of our state-of-the-art facilities. All of these items, when given to UT Arlington as gifts-in-kind, have intrinsic value not only to the donor but to the department or program that receives them.

Shimadzu Center

An in-kind gift from Shimadzu Scientific Instruments valued at nearly $3 million established the Shimadzu Center for Advanced Analytical Chemistry in the College of Science.

We will put your gifts-in-kind to immediate use or convert them to cash. Gifts-in-kind may include donations of property such as real estate, works of art, books, equipment, furnishings, software, licensing, and more. These non-cash gifts of tangible personal property can make a world of difference in our quest to create new knowledge and shape the minds of future leaders.

For example, a recent software donation from global information and analytics provider IHS gives our students and professors access to the latest in petroleum industry technology. Worth an estimated $4.4 million over three years, the licensing gift will help prepare our students for successful careers in the growing geoscience-related fields. Another gift-in-kind, from Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, has established the Shimadzu Center for Advanced Analytical Chemistry. Our researchers will use the center’s state-of-the-art scientific instrumentation to explore preventions and treatments for cancer and malaria as well as in the development of nanofabrication materials for industry.
