Legacy Gifts

To ensure that the NRS will always have the resources it needs, we encourage you to consider extending your generosity beyond your lifetime by naming UC Santa Barbara Foundation in your will for the benefit of the Natural Reserve System.
We can also discuss with you planned giving strategies, such as trusts and charitable gift annuities, which allow you to improve your financial situation and make a gift to the Natural Reserve System.

To learn more about how you can create your future legacy through Planned Giving, contact Chris Pizzinat, Director of Major Gift Planning, or call 805.893.5126

As of July 1, 2012, it is the policy of the University of California, Santa Barbara and the UC Santa Barbara Foundation that 6% of gifts and/or the income from gifts may be used to defray the costs of raising and administering funds.
