Securities can be transferred directly from your brokerage account to the University's account. Securities are recorded based on the mean market value of the stock on the date of gift, which is the date you relinquish control of the stock.

Bequests and Gift Planning

Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities and shape our future.

Since its founding, UC Berkeley has benefited from visionary supporters who made planned gifts. Their generosity has been used to support undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, faculty chairs, research, infrastructure, and other campus priorities.

A planned gift may enable you to make a more significant gift than you thought possible while at the same time allowing you to achieve your financial, philanthropic and estate planning goals. A planned gift may also provide you with significant tax benefits. To that end, there are a myriad of easy giving options from which you can choose - from naming us as a beneficiary in your will to a more complex trust arrangement.

For more information, please call the GSE's Office of Development and External Relations at (510) 643-9784, or call University Relations' Office of Gift Planning at (510) 642-6300. You may also visit the Office of Gift Planning website.

Recognition Programs

The Charter Hill Society, and other campus recognition programs, honor the extraordinary commitment of donors who preserve and enhance the University’s excellence in education, research, and public service through their significant annual giving. More information about benefits and associated programs is available on the Charter Hill website.
