Create Your Legacy of Philanthropy

When you create or update your fund, you also decide which charities will receive any funds that remain after your lifetime.

If you decide to change your beneficiary designation for your fund to include University of the Pacific, would you let us know? We would like to recognize you for your generosity and ensure that your gift is used as you intend.

Please contact us if you have any questions about setting up your legacy gift or if you need more information.

6 ways you can make an impact with your donor-advised fund

Memorialize, honor, or commemorate a loved one or an event.

Avoid capital gains by first transferring appreciated stock to your donor-advised fund and then gifting it in minutes.

Teach your loved ones about charity and why you believe in giving back.

Build a sense of community (and make a bigger impact) by forming “giving circles” with other donor-advised fund owners including friends and family members.

Bundle your charitable gifts (doing so could result in an opportunity to itemize your deductions in the same year).

Leave all or a portion of your the account to charity simply by changing your beneficiary designation.

We hope you will consider naming University of the Pacific as a beneficiary of your account. You may even designate University of the Pacific to receive a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your children or grandchildren to continue your legacy of philanthropy.
