Honorary and Memorial Funds

Making a gift to BCOE in honor or memory of a teacher, student, relative or friend is a thoughtful and generous way to recognize his or her life and accomplishments. When you make an honorary or memorial gift, BCOE will send a card or email to the honoree or next-of-kin – on your behalf – to let them know about your support. We do not share the amount, and you can also choose to remain anonymous.

Consider joining us in making a gift to BCOE in two very distinctive ways:

You can make a financial contribution to one or more of the honorary or memorial funds listed below. This is an opportunity to share in our College’s existing efforts to advance quality engineering education through scholarships, awards, and discretionary support. The funds below hold a special place in the hearts of many and your support will add to the educational impact these funds are sure to have.

Establish a new honorary or memorial fund for someone exceptional in your life. If you have a family member or friend whose life has been touched by University of California at Riverside, we hope you will consider creating a fund in honor or memory of that person. 

Gifts can be made in cash or as a transfer of assets. Thank you for your support. For questions or more information on how to establish a new fund, please call Senior Director of Development Jed Schwendiman at (951) 827-4897.
