Benefits of Giving
Donor Recognition and the Benefits of Giving
Your contribution to UC Santa Cruz touches every part of our academic enterprise. Through your generosity, you may enrich research activity, invigorate scholarship and the arts, launch a college-based learning initiative, and provide scholarship support for students who might not otherwise be able to participate in our exceptional programs.
Beyond providing financial assistance, your support of our campus creates an essential partnership, through which you join thousands of alumni, faculty, staff, and campus friends who provide crucial funding for UC Santa Cruz.
As a partner of the campus, you will be acknowledged in our Honor Roll of Donors (PDF, 1.1MB), invited to special campus events, and kept up-to-date on campus activities through our UC Santa Cruz Foundation Annual Report.
UC Santa Cruz recognizes the generosity of our donors through our Donor Opportunities Program.
The UC Santa Cruz Foundation is a nonprofit organization, so gifts qualify as charitable contributions to the fullest extent allowed by federal and state income-tax laws. As with all financial considerations, we encourage you to discuss potential tax advantages and other aspects of charitable giving with a financial adviser.
