527.1 Charitable Donations

Utah State University is a public tax-exempt institution of higher education and therefore, as a general rule, does not make charitable contributions. However, in rare circumstances, donations can be made, with approval from the appropriate Dean or Vice President, where the expenditure serves a legitimate purpose that advances the mission of the University.
