Build A Legacy With A Gift That Supports Your Passions

Donald and Hisae Dickey supported the UCLA Library in a number of ways, including establishing an endowment to support an area of special interest to them: The Donald Ryder Dickey Library of Vertebrate Zoology. You, too, can create a named endowment at the UCLA Library honoring your legacy and supporting your passions. Endowments start at $50,000, and funds can be paid over five years.

A variety of assets can be used, such as real estate, cash, appreciated stock, life insurance, or retirement accounts. Some options will result in estate tax savings, while others will produce significant charitable income tax deductions.
