When making or revising a will or living trust, please consult with an estate planning attorney. The UC Davis Office of Planned Giving is available to work with you and your attorney to assure that your gift intention is properly structured to make an impact that is meaningful to you.  We encourage you to speak with us if you are interested in making a bequest or other gift to benefit UC Davis.
