There are many ways to reduce your tax burden significantly during your lifetime by making contributions to UCLA Law. There are numerous outright and planned gift options that can provide you with considerable income and capital gains tax savings.
Charitable Gift Annuity
A UCLA charitable gift annuity is one of the easiest ways to support your philanthropic interests. In exchange for your gift of cash or appreciated securities, you receive fixed income for life. You also benefit from an immediate charitable income tax deduction, and a significant portion of the annuity payments is tax-free.
Deferred Charitable Gift Annuity
A UCLA deferred charitable gift annuity gives you all the advantages of an immediate charitable gift annuity plus the added flexibility of timing and increasing your annuity payments to enhance your financial plans.
Charitable Remainder Unitrust
A UCLA charitable remainder unitrust is a gift arrangement that allows you to support the university while providing you with tax and income advantages.
Gifts of Real Estate
Real estate (your primary residence, vacation home, commercial property, farm or land) is an asset you can leverage in a variety of ways to support UCLA while reducing taxes and eliminating the burden of maintaining or selling your property.
Retained Life Estate
Make a gift of real estate during your lifetime, and enjoy immediate and significant tax benefits while continuing to live in your home for life.
Gifts of Retirement Assets
Retirement savings may be a large portion of your estate. However, these assets are also subject to income tax and possibly estate tax. Funding charitable gifts with retirement assets lets you minimize taxes. You also maximize your philanthropic impact and leave other, less taxed parts of your estate to your loved ones.
Donor Advised Fund
A donor advised fund provides the flexibility of a private foundation, with UCLA as your philanthropic partner. This powerful tool helps you and your family build a significant legacy through gifts to UCLA and your other favorite charities.
Gifts of Tangible Personal Property
Giving art, jewelry, rare books or manuscripts and other collectibles to UCLA provides you with tax advantages and the satisfaction of a legacy that will benefit generations to come.
