Outright gifts of cash can be made by check, credit card, electronic funds transfer, or payroll deduction (for UC San Diego employees). Gifts may be submitted by contacting Chancellor’s Associates staff, at (858) 822-2540, or donating online.

Annual or multiyear pledges enable you to make your gift over your preferred time frame.

Gifts of stock allow you to maximize your contribution, with the benefit of additional tax savings. You can also support UC San Diego and enjoy tax savings by making a gift through your IRA. For more information contact Kim Wenrick, at (858) 534-4132.

Matching-gift programs can dramatically increase the impact of your donation to UC San Diego. Many employers offer matching funds that may double or triple any charitable contributions made by their employees. Visit our Employer Matching Gifts Program page to find out more and to see if your company is a participant. 

Single or multiyear endowed gifts establish your enduring legacy at UC San Diego. During the Chancellor’s Associates Endowment Challenge, your contribution can have 25% more impact, thanks to a 1:4 match of all endowed-scholarship gifts of $100,000 or more. You will also be immediately linked with a named scholar and you will receive lifelong recognition as a Chancellor’s Associates. For more information or questions, please contact us.


Please join the Triton family today, as a Chancellor’s Associate!
