UCLA Bequest Challenge
100% toward goal!
Thank you to our generous UCLA alumni and friends who chose to remember
UCLA in their wills or living trusts in support of the many campus
units! We reached our goal of identifying more than 1,200 new bequest
intentions to the university.
Each gift represents future scholarships and fellowships, new research breakthroughs, world-class patient care, a place for the arts to flourish, and so much more.
It is not too late to establish a meaningful legacy gift and join a philanthropic effort that will propel and support the university into its second century.
Please contact UCLA's Office of Gift Planning.
New rates for UCLA charitable gift annuities
Starting July 1, establish a UCLA charitable gift annuity and take advantage of the new, higher payout rates!
- Receive income for life at a higher payment rate (see sample chart below). This could be a source of additional retirement income that is not tied to market fluctuations and that you cannot outlive.
- Payments can start right away or may be deferred for an even more advantageous rate.
- You can enjoy immediate tax benefits with a charitable income tax deduction. If you are funding your annuity with appreciated securities, you can also reduce capital gains tax.
- And, a portion of your annuity payment is tax-free for a number of years.
Sample Payment Rate Increase
