Ways to Give

The School of Nursing Dean’s Fund donations provide immediate funds for the Dean to allocate toward the school’s priorities. These gifts give the school the flexibility to fund new initiatives, enhance student life, and build academic programs. At a time when state support provides just 13% of the school’s operating budget, annual gifts—both large and small, are essential to maintaining the school’s quality.

You may mail your gift to:
Office of Development & Alumni Relations
UCLA School of Nursing
10880 Wilshire Boulevard, Ste 590
Los Angeles, CA 90095

Should any questions arise, please feel free to contact our office at (310) 794-2358.

Cash or Checks

Gifts of cash or checks allow you to claim an income tax charitable deduction for the full value of your gift. 

Make your check payable to the UCLA Foundation. Please do not send cash in the mail.

Credit and Debit Cards

You may elect to give via a charge to your credit or debit card. You can arrange for either a one-time charge/debit or smaller, monthly deductions. Cards accepted for donations include VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Give Online

Giving online is simple, fast and has an immediate impact. You will have the opportunity to direct your gift to your special area of interest. Make a gift online using our secure online form »».

Gift of Securities

Appreciated stocks and bonds are, next to cash, the most popular assets donated to the UCLA School of Nursing by alumni and friends. Securities can be transferred directly from your brokerage account to the University’s account.

Consider these advantages of giving securities:

  • If you file and itemized return, you are entitled to a federal income-tax charitable deduction. Many state income-tax laws also allow for a charitable deduction.
  • If the donated items have been held long-term (12 months or longer), you may claim a deduction for their full fair-market value.
  • When appreciated securities are donated, you avoid paying tax on the capital gain. 

Note: Always discuss donations with your tax consultant to maximize your benefits. You can notify us of your intention to transfer the shared by contacting our office at (310) 794-2358 or by email at: ezamora@sonnet.ucla.edu. (Please enter "Gifts of Securities" in the subject line.)

Bequest, Planned Gifts and/or Gift Annuity

Please call Devon Brown at (310) 794-2213 for information about a range of planned giving opportunities.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs for charitable contributions made to higher education by their employees. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Before making your contribution, find out if your organization will match your gift by checking our database of matching gift companies (http://www.matchinggifts.com/ucla) You receive full credit for your matching gifts for the purpose of recognition and benefits. For receipting and tax reasons, the matched portion of the gift must be recorded on the corporation’s record.

Wire Transfer

Wire transfers are most commonly used for gifts made from outside the United States. Banks provide minimal information with wire transfers, so please notify the Office of Development & Alumni Affairs at (310) 794-2358 of your gift in advance to ensure it is processed correctly. Complete and follow the instructions on the Wire Transfer Instruction Form. For Foundation funds, click HERE. For Regental funds, click HERE.
