Creating an Endowment

An endowment can serve as a sign of your commitment to Touro University California by providing TUC with the funds needed for growth for years to come. Endowments can be created through an outright gift or pledge, through a bequest in a will, or through a life income gift such as a charitable remainder trust. A TUC Endowment will allow you to recognize or honor a loved one, colleague, or friend.  It’s as simple as selecting an area of interest then teaming up with a member of our Advancement Department to ensure your donation carries on as a legacy of your passion and interest.

Why Consider an Endowed Gift?

To extend your support of TUC beyond your lifetime.

To honor someone special, your family name, or an organization.

To provide annual financing to a project close to your heart, a particular area of personal interest, or for one of the many programs currently available at TUC.
