Gift Planning

A Legacy of Promise

Help UCR students and faculty to fulfill their promise by investing in a planned gift. UCR has been served by planned gifts in a variety of ways — from scholarships and program support to preservation of treasured places on campus. Whether you establish a bequest or a life income gift, you will benefit scholars at UCR for generations to come.

Life Income Gifts

Life income gifts pay income to you and loved ones while providing future support to UCR. These gifts also provide a charitable deduction and other tax advantages.

  • Charitable Gift Annuity

    Charitable gift annuities pay a fixed sum each year to you or anyone you name (up to two individuals) for life—unaffected by market fluctuations. UCR Charitable Gift Annuities are issued by the UC Regents and are backed by UC systemwide assets.

  • Deferred Gift Annuity

    Looking to increase retirement income? With a Deferred Gift Annuity, you secure a higher payout for life by starting income at a later date. You also get an immediate charitable deduction and ongoing tax savings.

  • Charitable Remainder Unitrust

    Turn appreciated assets into an income stream while minimizing capital gains. Payouts of a Charitable Remainder Unitrust can be set to grow as trust principal grows.

Charitable Lead Trust

You transfer your cash or property to fund a lead trust that makes gifts to us for a number of years. You receive a charitable deduction for the gift. Your family receives the remainder at substantial tax savings.

Bequests and Wills

To make a gift by bequest, simply name UC Riverside Foundation (tax ID: #23-7433570) as a beneficiary of one or more of the following:

  • Will
  • Trust
  • Retirement account
  • Insurance plan
  • Bank account

Please let us know if you plan to include UCR in your plans so that we can ensure that your wishes can be fulfilled. Contact us for sample bequest language.

The Watkins Society

The Watkins Society, named after UCR’s first provost, Gordon S. Watkins, honors donors who have made a commitment to the university’s continued excellence by establishing a legacy gift. These gifts provide essential support to the outstanding students and world-renowned faculty at UCR for generations to come.
