Bequests and Planned Gifts

Legacy gifts have resulted in some of UCLA’s most generous and far-reaching gifts. Your planned gift will ensure academic excellence and access for generations to come. Your gift can also provide financial and tax benefits for you, your heirs, and others you care about. Many individuals who could not otherwise make a major gift find they are able to do so with a carefully planned gift, thereby fulfilling their philanthropic goals.

Planned gifts include:

  • Gift Annuities
  • Charitable trusts
  • Gifts of property or real estate

Whatever your age, you can make a substantial contribution to the UCLA SNF Center for the Study of Hellenic Culture through a planned gift and satisfy your personal tax and long-term financial goals at the same time.
