DONOR ADVISED FUNDS: Through our relationship with the UC Davis financial office, it is easy to make a gift from your Donor Advised Fund. Simply ask your advisor to direct your gift to UC ANR, ID# 94-6036494 (UC Davis), then note any other designation, such as a specific program, etc.
It is always helpful and appreciated if you let us know you have designated a gift to us through your Donor Advised Funds, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
MAKE A TAX-FREE DONATION TO UC ANR DIRECTLY FROM YOUR IRA: While a distribution from your IRA is normally treated as taxable income, the IRS allows retirees age 70½ years and older to donate up to $100,000 tax-free from their IRA each year to a qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit, such as UC ANR (and the California 4-H Foundation). To benefit, you must direct your distribution directly to charity. To be eligible:
- The IRA account owner must be 70½ years or older at the time of distribution. The rule applies only to Traditional, Rollover, and Roth IRAs. SEPs and SIMPLE IRAs are generally excluded.
- Distribution must be made to a qualifying charity. UC ANR is a qualifying nonprofit charity; Federal Tax ID 94-6036494. [then same for 4-H 23-7327765]
- IRA Trustee or custodian must make the distribution directly to the charity. Distributions made payable to the IRA owner and transferred to the charity will not qualify.
- Make sure to let us know you have made this distribution so we can ensure receipt of it and proper acknowledgment.
INVEST IN THE FUTURE WITH A MULTI-YEAR DONATION
Multi-year pledges allow for more effective program planning and are an excellent way to ensure sustainability of 4-H programming. Pledges may be paid over a period of up to five years from the time of the commitment in annual, semiannual, or quarterly installments. We will work with you to develop a payment schedule. Payments may be in cash, with credit or debit cards, or wire or securities transfers. If you would like to make a multi-year pledge with your credit or debit card, please visit our online donation page.

MEMORIAL AND HONORARY GIFTS
HONOR A SPECIAL PERSON OR A SIGNIFICANT EVENT
A memorial gift can help perpetuate the values and ideals that guided someone’s life. Honorary gifts commemorate a significant event or someone who is still living.

If you are interested in making a memorial or honorary gift, please make sure to provide the appropriate information when you make or submit your gift. You can make an online donation here, designating the person in whose honor you would like to make the donation.

MATCH YOUR GIFT THROUGH YOUR COMPANY’S MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM
Many companies will match their employees’ gifts to the California 4-H Foundation through their giving programs. You receive full credit for your matching gifts for the purposes of recognition and benefits. Check with your human resources department to find out whether your company has a matching gift policy. If it does, your employer will usually provide a form for you to fill out and send to us with your donation. We will verify your gift and return the form to your company, which will then issue a matching gift contribution directly to the Foundation. Find out if your company has a matching gift program here. If your company’s name does not appear on the list, it may still have a giving program – check with your H.R. Department find out your options.
