Making a gift in your will or living trust, known as a bequest, can guarantee that your legacy endures. Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after all other provisions are specified.

The Trustee shall distribute…[insert amount, percentage of the estate, or "the rest and remainder of my estate"] to the UC San Diego Foundation, a not for profit corporation (Tax ID#: 95-2872494), located in La Jolla, California, to support UC San Diego and [insert program, department, school, research area or fund number], to be managed with oversight from the assigned business officer and campus leadership, in accordance with all applicable University of California and UC San Diego policies and procedures.

If you have named UC San Diego in your will or trust, please let us know so we can ensure that your gift is used according to your wishes. Notifying us of your plans will enable us to plan for the use of your future gift. However, if you prefer to remain anonymous, we will keep your name and gift in strict confidence.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have as you make your estate plans. Please contact the Office of Gift Planning at (858) 534-2249 or for more information.
