Planned Giving

Leaving a Lasting Impression

What would you like your legacy to be?

For many, it is the knowledge that they’ve been able to help others or make the world a little bit better because of their actions.  UC Santa Barbara has been privileged to be the recipient of many “planned gifts,” all of which have a significant and positive impact on the future of the campus and on generations of students to come.  

Whether you are considering a simple bequest, naming the UC Santa Barbara Foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance, or exploring a gift option that provides you with additional lifetime income, we’re happy to help.  Our team is skilled at addressing varied circumstances, and can help you determine the right plan to achieve your philanthropic vision.
