Gift Giving

Thank You Image

Thanks to the hard work of the UCR Retirees' and Emeriti Associations' leadership, and the support of Chancellor Wilcox, the UCR Retirement Center was established in December 2019. The UCR Retirement Center continues to develop programs, services and events to build a community of retirees and emeriti that stays connected to the UCR campus. Through educational, informational and social engagement programs, the Center remains committed to serving the needs of retirees and emeriti throughout their retirement experience.  

The UCR Retirement Center is grateful to be able to leverage the knowledge and engagement in programs and events with the associations, its members and the community. We have increased our outreach through virtual engagements such as:

  • Highlander Emeriti and Retiree Tech-Tips (HEART) Program 
  • Dickson Lectures in cooperation with UCR Extension
  • Estate and Advance Care Planning Workshops
  • Luncheons
  • Social Clubs and Activities
  • Wellness Tips and Resources

Along with continued leadership and advocacy for advancing retirement resources, and support through financial contributions that fill the gap in funding programs and services, your partnership in our efforts to thrive in the season of COVID-19 and beyond is essential and appreciated.

To ensure the stability and development of programs and events, we ask you to consider donating to the UCR Retirement Center, UCR Retirees' Association Scholarship Fund or the UCR Emeriti Association Scholarship Fund.
