Ways to Give


Gifts to UC Merced provide financial benefits to the donor. All gifts are tax deductible. In addition, cash gifts and securities can offer excellent tax advantages. Planned giving commitments–such as bequests, lifetime trusts, gift annuities and life insurance policies are also welcome, and some also provide the donor with income.

Corporate Matching


Many companies participate in matching gift programs. Some companies will even match gifts made by retirees and spouses of employees. Request a matching gift form from your employer. Matching gifts are factored into giving society levels.
