More Ways to Give

  • Cash gifts may also be made by money order or wire transfer.
  • Pledges allow donors to promise a gift and make payments over time, which sometimes enables contributors to give more generously than otherwise possible. Payments can be made using cash, credit cards, securities, or other kinds of assets, over a period of up to five years.
  • Gifts of securities, including stocks, bonds and mutual funds, can provide relief from capital gains taxes.
  • Gifts-in-kind are items of tangible personal property or other physical assets — including artwork, books, equipment or specialized instruments — that are of value to the university.
  • Gifts of real property, including land, farms, personal residences, and rental or commercial property, can benefit the university while providing relief from capital gains taxes and eliminating property expenses.
  • Payroll deduction provides UC Davis employees with an easy, convenient and tax-advantaged way to support their university. It also allows UC Davis employees the flexibility of splitting gifts into convenient payments and gives the added ability to control the length and frequency of the donation. Start your payroll deduction today by filing out either: The UC Davis Faculty Member Payroll Deduction Form or The UC Davis Staff Member Payroll Deduction Form. To learn more, download the UC Staff & Faculty Payroll Deduction Procedures.  
  • Matching gifts can double or triple the impact of any gift or pledge made to the School of Education. Determine if you or your spouse’s employer has a matching gift program.
