How to Give

Many planned gifts can actually begin their impact on our university today. Click on a gift model below to learn more about how they work.

  • IRA Rollover
    Congress has enacted a permanent IRA charitable rollover. As a result, you can make an IRA rollover gift to UC Riverside this year and in future years.
  • Charitable Lead Trust
    You fund a trust that makes gifts to UC Riverside for a number of years. Your family receives the trust remainder at substantial tax savings.
  • Donor Advised Funds
    You fund a DAF and make charitable gift recommendations during your lifetime. When you pass away, your children can carry on your legacy of giving.
  • Gifts of Insurance
    A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to UC Riverside. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.
  • Bargain Sale
    UC Riverside purchases your property for less than fair market value. You receive cash and a charitable deduction for the difference between the market value and purchase price.
  • Gifts of Real Estate
    Donating appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property can make a great gift to UC Riverside.
  • Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
    Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to UC Riverside.
  • Gifts of Intellectual Property
    The democratization of technology means that more people are able to create and transfer intellectual property to a charitable cause such as UC Riverside.
  • Gifts of Personal Property
    Making a donation of tangible personal property can be an excellent way to save on taxes, dispose of property that is expensive to insure or maintain, and make an impact on the future at UC Riverside.
  • Gifts of Cash
    A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift.
  • Endowments
