Planned Giving

​Planned Giving

Gifts of Securities: Stocks or other investments that have grown in value and that you have owned longer than one year can become a substantial gift with a low net cost to you. You receive a charitable deduction for the donation, which is based on the stocks' fair market value on the date of the gift. And, there is a potential bonus—you eliminate all federal capital gains tax that would otherwise be owed on a sale of the assets. Please visit for more information. ​

Life Income Gifts: Are you looking for additional income or a possible tax deduction, while making a charitable contribution to the PDRC at UC San Diego? Have you thought about how a charitable gift annuity could help you achieve these goals? Our gift annuity program provides you with attractive rates of return, partially tax-free payments, an income tax deduction, and fixed payments for your lifetime. 

Bequests: Another opportunity available to you is to include the Pediatric Diabetes Research Center in your estate plan through a bequest or in your trust. Gifts made by bequest play a vital role in fulfilling our mission. Simply use the following when working with your attorney:

I hereby bequeath or the trustee shall distribute [insert amount, percentage of the estate, or "the remainder of my estate"] to the UC San Diego Foundation to support at the Pediatric Diabetes Research Center at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD).
