Planned Giving

Many alumni and friends have chosen to leave a legacy at UC Santa Cruz through their will, trust, or retirement account. Potential examples include:

  • An alumna providing for a scholarship in her major of Environmental Studies
  • A professor emerita supporting the study of plant ecology and evolution
  • An alumnus parent creating an endowment to serve the need of a UC Natural Reserve

Please consider including UC Santa Cruz in your plans. Your gift can honor a beloved professor, a family member or your own experience, while providing for the future of UC Santa Cruz and its students.

For more information on how you can make an impact at UC Santa Cruz Natural Reserves while also providing for your loved ones, please call (831) 502-7112 or email
