Gifts can be used immediately to support a variety of current needs. They provide flexibility, allowing UCLA to use them when and where needs are greatest. A pledge is a formal statement of intent to make a gift over a period of time (up to five years).

Cash Wire Transfer
Wire transfers are most commonly used for gifts made from outside the United States. Banks provide minimal information on wire transfers, so to ensure proper disposition of the gift, print and fax this Wire Transfer Instruction Form (PDF) and alert UCLA Health Sciences Development.
