Estate and Gift Planning

The UC Davis MIND Institute offers a number of giving alternatives that can assist individuals with their estate planning and provide a lasting benefit for neurodevelopmental research and clinical care. As with all aspects of estate and tax matters, you should seek qualified legal, tax, and financial advice in developing your plan.

  • Gifts by Will or Revocable Trust
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Polled Income Fund
  • Gift of Real Estate

Friends who have included the UC Davis MIND Institute and the UC Davis Health in their estate plans are recognized by membership in the Heritage Circle. Each year the dean of the School of Medicine hosts an annual luncheon to honor members of this premier society. Members are encouraged to explore their interest in medicine by attending tours, lectures, and other special programs.

For more information about making an estate gift, planning or the Heritage circle, please contact Marcus Frost, Director of Development for the MIND Institute at 916-703-0221 or jmfrost@ucdavis.edu.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts
