Year End Giving

As the calendar year comes to an end, it can be a perfect time to make your tax-deductible donation to UC Davis. Here is some helpful information on how to make that gift so it will count for 2017 calendar year:

  • All gifts must be United States Postal Service postmarked December 31, 2017 to be tax deductible for the 2017 calendar year.  The postmark must be United States Postal Service, not UPS, FedEx, or any other private courier service.
  • If you want to use a private courier service such as UPS or FedEx, gifts need to be received at 202 Cousteau Place, Suite 185  by 3 p.m. on December 30, 2017 in order for it to be tax deductible for the 2017 calendar year.
  • Hand-delivered gifts will be accepted at 202 Cousteau Place, Suite 185, but must be received before noon on December 31, 2017. 
  • Gifts to UC Davis can easily be made online during the holidays via credit card by visiting our online giving site where you can find general or department’s specific online giving funds. It is easy, secure, and you can give until 11:59pm on December 31, 2017 and it will still be tax deductible for 2017.
