The University of California Trust (UK) was established in 1999 by California Governor Gray Davis and UC President Atkinson as a joint initiative with the California Trade & Commerce Agency. 

A registered British Charity (No. 1075405), the Trust facilitates charitable giving to all 10 UC campuses. Donors from the UK and European can access tax-effective giving options to any funds or scholarships at the campuses. This includes funding to advance medical research, study abroad scholarships, climate change research – among so many others! 

In 2008, the University of California, Los Angeles became a shareholder of the UC Trust (UK) with the goal of creating a development office for Europe. In 2020, the University of California, San Diego became the second UC campus to become a shareholder. 

The UC Trust (UK) is governed by a board of trustees.
