Ways to Give

Donations to the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health Fund provide immediate funds for the Dean to allocate toward the Fielding School's priorities. These gifts give the Fielding School the flexibility to fund new initiatives, enhance student life, and build academic programs. At a time when state support provides just 15% of the Fielding School's operating budget, annual gifts - both large and small - are essential to maintaining the Fielding School's quality.

Giving Online

Giving online to any of the School's funds is simple, fast and has an immediate impact -- and you can direct your gift to your special area of interest. You can arrange either for a one-time charge/debit, or a series of charges/debits over a period of time. Cards accepted include VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. The Fielding School makes it convenient to give online:

Checks

Gifts given by check allow you to claim an income tax charitable deduction for the full value of your gift.

Make your check payable to the UCLA Foundation. Include a note or memo indicating where the gift should be directed and please mail the gift to:

Office of External Affairs
UCLA Fielding School of Public Health
Box 951772, 16-080 CHS
Los Angeles, CA 90095-1772
 
Please do not send cash in the mail.

Gift of Securities

Appreciated stocks and bonds are, next to cash, the most popular assets donated to the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health by alumni and friends. Securities can be transferred directly from your brokerage account to the University's account.

Consider these advantages of giving securities:

  • If you file an itemized return, you are entitled to a federal income-tax charitable deduction. Many state income tax laws also allow for a charitable deduction.
  • If the donated items have been held long-term (12 months or longer), you may claim a deduction for their full fair-market value.
  • When appreciated securities are donated, you avoid paying tax on the capital gain.

Note: Always discuss donations with your tax consultant to maximize your benefits. Please notify us of your intention to transfer the shares by contacting our office at 310.825.6464.

Bequest, Planned Gifts and/or Gift Annuity

Please call 310.825.6464 for information on a broader range of planned giving opportunities.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs for charitable contributions made to higher education by their employees. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Before making your contribution, find out if your organization will match your gift by checking our database. You receive full credit for your matching gifts for the purpose of recognition and benefits. For receipting and tax reasons, the matched portion of the gift must be recorded on the corporation's record.
