Planned Giving

To learn about the many benefits of making a planned gift, visit: http://www.plannedgiving.uci.edu/

Endowed Funds

Endowed funds are invested in perpetuity. A portion of the invested return is distributed annually to university priorities and designated programs, while the remaining portion of the return is reinvested back into the principal for market growth. This allows for endowment to provide both immediate funding and long-term financial security for the institution, ensuring that the fund will continue to benefit future generations of scholars, faculty, and patients.

Corporate and Foundation Giving

Gifts from foundation and corporate partners advance knowledge, research and community initiatives that have a positive impact on our campus and the world.
