The UC San Diego Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation (Tax ID #95-2872494) which was established in 1972, in response to the University's recognition that private support is essential to maintaining and enhancing the margin of excellence at UC San Diego. The Foundation helps UC San Diego obtain private gifts (in support of research, teaching, and public service) and manages the gift assets. From the Foundation's inception in 1972, members of the Board of Trustees have formed a crucial link between UC San Diego and the community. The Trustees communicate about UC San Diego to the public, and in so doing, build interest in the campus and support for its programs. The excellence that UCSD has achieved has been assisted by the community, and the Trustees and volunteers who serve the UC San Diego Foundation continue to play a critical role in the growth and success of the campus. The Foundation accepts, administers, and invests private gifts in the form of cash and real or personal property and manages the funds either as endowments or as funds available for current expenditure. The Foundation’s net assets at June 30, 2012 were $586 million, of which the endowment comprised approximately $290 million.
