Make a Gift

Contribute to the pursuit of a healthier world

Ways to Contribute

Gifts of Cash

The simplest and most common type of gift. You can make a one-time gift or a pledge to be paid over a one to five-year period.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities 

Outright gifts of appreciated securities, such as stocks and bonds, that are held long term (e.g., more than 12 months).

United Way or Community Giving Campaigns

Designate your payroll deduction gift to UCSF-Regeneration Medicine Program.


Make a bequest in your will or living trust to UCSF to benefit the Regeneration Medicine Program. Contact the Office of Gift & Endowment Planning for recommended wording.

Life Insurance

Transfer ownership or name UCSF the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

Retirement Assets

Name UCSF the beneficiary of all or a portion of retirement assets, such as IRA or 403(b) accounts.

Real Estate

Contribute real property in the form of an outright gift, bequest or retained life estate.

Life Income Gifts

The most common of these are charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. They enable you to make a gift and receive income back for life or a period of time.

Corporate Sponsorship

The Center welcomes interest from corporate friends and supporters. Companies have routinely chosen to underwrite our seminars, symposiums and retreats.
