Gifts by Wills or Living Trusts
You may be looking for a way to make a significant gift to help further our mission. A bequest is a gift made through your will or trust. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways you can impact the future at UCR.
Gifts of Stocks or Bonds
Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is a simple and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to UCR.
Gifts of Real Estate
Gifts of appreciated real estate provide you with an immediate tax deduction and capital gains tax savings and can be made immediately or through your will or living trust. Consider also making a tax-deductible current gift of your home, while continuing to live in and enjoying it for your lifetime with a gift of retained life interest.
Gifts of Personal Property
Almost any form of property such as works of art, antiques, and other personal items, can be suitable gifts to the university. In many cases, the full appraised value of the property on the date of the gift will be credited to the university.
Gifts of Intellectual Property
Donate intellectual property such as copyrights, patents, royalties, licenses, and technical data. The tax and legal provisions that govern these gifts vary according to the type of property.
Gifts of Retirement Assets
Donate part or all of your unused retirement assets such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension, or other tax-deferred plan.
Gifts of Insurance
If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your policy to UCR.
Foundation and Corporate Giving
UCR has a long and successful history of partnering with national, regional, and family foundations. The Foundation Relations team is available to assist foundation partners with visits to campus, meetings with faculty and key leadership, and other UCR connections.
