Other Ways to Give

Planned and estate gifts are giving arrangements that enable donors to support the university while benefiting from specific tax advantages and income streams. Bequests are the most common form of planned giving made by naming the School of Education as a beneficiary in your will or living trust. Please contact Jennifer Martinez at jelmartinez@ucdavis.edu to discuss how we can help you meet your philanthropic goals through planned giving.

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 a Payroll Deduction Form.

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.
