Ways to Give


Possibilities of Partnership: How You Can Support the Diabetes Center

There are a number of ways you can donate to the Diabetes Center at UCSF. 

Outright Gifts: The most common way of giving to the Diabetes Center is to make an outright gift of cash, securities, or personal property. Outright gifts offer the distinct advantage of being immediately available to assist the Diabetes Center in its programs. Donate online to the Diabetes Center.

Pledges: A pledge demonstrates your intention to make a gift to the Diabetes Center and may allow you to give more generously over a period of time than would be possible through a single contribution. You may make a commitment to the Diabetes Center payable over a period of three to five years. 

Planned Gifts: You can support the Diabetes Center by arranging a gift through a trust, a bequest, a charitable gift annuity, or other planned giving options. Each type of planned gift offers a distinct set of advantages. Some plans provide income for life for a donor or loved one. Others result in an immediate tax deduction or a reduction in capital gains tax. Visit the Gift Planning website to learn more about the various types of planned gifts and how they can benefit you as well as the Diabetes Center. Our UCSF Foundation staff is available to answer questions and talk with you or your advisors to help create a gift plan that is tailored to your financial circumstances and interests.
