Make what matters to you count: Year-end giving

Year-end giving

At the UC Irvine’ Gavin Herbert Eye Institute’s Refractive Surgery LASIK Center, ophthalmologists like Marjan Farid and Sumit "Sam" Garg use state-of-the-art laser technology to treat age-related eye conditions as well as problems such as nearsightedness and astigmatism.

When you support the things that matter to you, you have an impact on the community and an impact on your taxes. UCI impacts many areas that may be important to you, from research to healthcare to student support. The final weeks of the year are an ideal time to balance your income and giving for the tax year.

Donations made on Dec. 31, 2013 by 8 p.m. PST, will qualify for 2013 tax credit.
