How to Make a Gift

You may make a gift to the Rosalind Russell Medical Research Center for Arthritis at UCSF online, click on "Donate Today", and select "Choose a designation" and select Arthritis." You may also contribute by way of check, stocks or mutual funds. In addition, you may give property, such as real estate and art. There may be significant tax advantages to making gifts of highly appreciated assets.

Through Your Will

A bequest is an easy way to make a meaningful gift in support of arthritis research.

Recommended bequest language: "I give to the University of California, San Francisco Foundation, a California nonprofit, public benefit corporation, [the sum of $_____ / ___% of the residue of my estate / the residue of my estate] to be used for the benefit of the Rosalind Russell Medical Research Center for Arthritis in such manner as the director shall determine."

Planned Gifts

A planned gift can, as part of thoughtful financial planning, allow individuals to make larger charitable gifts than they may have thought possible.

Planned gifts, such as a gift annuity, pooled income fund, or charitable remainder trust can be an excellent gift vehicle for individuals with highly appreciated assets, who are also seeking greater lifetime income.

Such gifts can, if structured correctly, provide significant tax advantages and an increased stream of current income, while ultimately benefiting arthritis research.

Planned gifts to the Rosalind Russell Medical Research Center for Arthritis are managed by the UCSF Foundation. The Foundation can provide skilled planned giving assistance to anyone seeking financial or tax-related advice on ways to maximize their giving in support of arthritis research.
