Did You Know that You Can Give to the University of California from Europe?

Well, you absolutely can! The University of California Trust (UK) allows donors to designate their gifts from most countries in Europe to any scholarship program, academic department or area of academic, scientific, or medical research at any UC campus.  UC Trust UK staff can also help donors set up new endowments for scholarships, fellowships, chairs, or other areas of interest, connect you with the appropriate representative at any UC campus to facilitate a gift to a University of California campus, and provide you with on-the-ground support in Europe to ensure that you are advised of opportunities for tax effective giving to UC from Europe
