Ways to Give
Gifts are vital to the mission of UCLA Samueli, and the school offers rewarding opportunities to match the interests of every donor. Gifts can be made in many ways.
Credit Card or Check
When you make a cash contribution, your gift will make an immediate impact. The easiest, most direct way to make a gift is online. You can also mail a check, cashier’s check, or money order, made payable to the UCLA Foundation, to:
The UCLA Foundation
PO Box 7145
Pasadena, CA 91109-9903
If you’d like to donate to UCLA Samueli in installments or defer the bulk of your gift until a future date, a pledge is the answer. You can make a pledge online. If you already have a pledge established, you can make a pledge payment online, as well.
Monthly giving combines the ease of a pledge with the convenience of automatic renewals. Even a $10 monthly donation adds up to provide a stable source of reliable funding for the initiatives and programs that make UCLA Samueli so special.
In a will or living trust, donors may specify that they would like their estate to benefit UCLA Samueli, and also may specify that they would like their gifts managed by The UCLA Foundation. For information on how to include UCLA Samueli in your estate plans, please contact the Office of Gift Planning by visiting www.legacy.ucla.edu or by calling 800.737-8252.
You can deed real property or an estate to The UCLA Foundation, in whole or in part, to benefit UCLA Samueli. Those who deed a home or estate can receive sizable tax deductions while still occupying the home for life. For more details, please contact the Office of Gift Planning by visiting www.legacy.ucla.edu or by calling 800.737-8252.
Gifts of stock can provide significant tax benefits to you, while proving an invaluable investment in UCLA Samueli students and faculty. In many cases, the tax benefits associated with direct giving will allow you to increase the size of your gift.
Charitable Gift Annuities
Donors may transfer stock, real estate or money in trust and receive income for themselves, or for others, for life. Donors may receive immediate tax benefits, and UCLA ultimately receives the trust property. For more information, please contact the Office of Gift Planning by visiting www.legacy.ucla.edu or calling 800.737-8252.
Prior to transferring securities, donors should notify the school by emailing stock gift transfer requests to email@example.com or faxing them to 310.208.4070. Wire instructions for cash gifts should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 310.208.4070.
Requesting a match from your employer is an easy way to maximize your contribution to UCLA Samueli. Many companies will match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Please go to matchinggifts.com/ucla for our matching gift company database. You will receive the full benefits credit and recognition with UCLA when you make a matching gift.
