Tax ID# 95-2250801

Cash Gifts

Cash gifts – whether check or credit card – are critically important to the University, because they can be put to work immediately, increasing their impact and extending their reach.

Wire Transfer

Any stock gift transfer request should be emailed to securities@support.ucla.edu or by fax (310)208-4070 prior to transferring securities as donor information does not transmit through the DTC wiring system.

Wire instructions for cash gifts to UCLA Foundation should be emailed to wiretransfers@support.ucla.edu or by fax (310) 208-4070. If you have any questions please call Tsegie Negus at 310-752-1976 or 310-752-1955. 

Matching Gifts

The easiest way to double – or even triple – your contribution to UCLA Anderson is to request a match from your employer. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Find out if your organization will match your gift by checking our database of matching gift companies. You will receive credit for your matching gifts for the purposes of recognition and benefits. For receipting and tax reasons, the matched portion of the gift must be recorded on the organization’s record.

Appreciated Assets/Securities

Appreciated stocks and bonds are, next to cash, the most popular assets donated to UCLA Anderson by alumni and friends. Securities can be transferred directly from your brokerage account to the school’s account. A gift of assets/securities may include several tax benefits for the donor. Please consult your tax advisor for additional information.

Please notify us of your intention to transfer shares by printing the DTC Instruction Form (PDF) below.

Bequests/Planned Gifts

In writing a will or living trust, donors can specify that they would like their estate to benefit UCLA Anderson. Donors who wish to have their gifts managed by The UCLA Foundation must specifically state in their wills or living trusts that their gifts be made to The UCLA Foundation.

Reunion Giving

If you are celebrating a UCLA Anderson milestone class reunion, your Reunion Class Gift will count towards the alumni participation rate and will impact the opportunities available for current students who are working hard to join you as alumni of this great institution. The Anderson Fund is the featured giving opportunity for all reunion campaigns. You may also choose to designate your gift to any center or program at UCLA Anderson.

Real Estate

Real property, either in its entirety or in part, can be deeded to The UCLA Foundation to benefit UCLA Anderson. For residential properties, it is possible to arrange a sizable tax deduction by deeding a home to UCLA Anderson, while continuing to occupy the property for life.

Charitable Gift Annuity

Donors may transfer money, securities, or real estate in trust to the University and receive income for themselves or another, for life. Donors may receive immediate tax benefits, and ultimately UCLA receives the trust property. For further information about making such a planned gift or bequest, click the link below.

Gifts of Materials/ Gifts in Kind

UCLA Anderson gratefully accepts donations of materials that support the academic, teaching and research mission of Anderson. The University receives a wide variety of such gifts, including rare books and manuscripts, works of art, equipment and other items of value.

Qualified Retirement Plans

Naming UCLA Anderson as a beneficiary of your qualified retirement plan (IRA, KEOGH, 401(k) or 403(b)) may be particularly advantageous; doing so may result in more assets being passed on to your heirs than if you make a bequest from other funds in your estate.
