International Gifts

The University of British Columbia has established three international charitable foundations for donors living in the United States, the United Kingdom and Hong Kong. These foundations help non-residents of Canada support UBC while maximizing their tax benefits. Gifts made to our foundations will flow directly to UBC to be used as you direct. No administration fees of any kind are deducted from your charitable gift.

Our staff is experienced working with complex gifts through our foundations. For example, each of the foundations is equipped to handle wired gifts of cash and securities, gifts received through public and private foundations, and corporate matching gifts, as well as gifts of property, charitable annuities, and legacy gifts such as bequests, insurance, or charitable trusts. For more information about giving through UBC’s international foundations, please contact UBC Gift & Estate Planning.
