Planned Giving

Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities and shape our future. Planned gifts can support undergraduate and graduate fellowships, research, infrastructure, outreach to vulnerable populations, and other GGSC priorities.

A planned gift may enable you to make a more significant gift than you thought possible while at the same time allowing you to achieve your financial, philanthropic, and estate planning goals. To that end, there are a myriad of easy giving options from which you can choose—from naming us as a beneficiary in your will to a more complex trust arrangement.

You can learn more about making a planned gift to the Greater Good Science Center by visiting or by calling the Office of Gift Planning at 510-642-6300.

Thank you for helping the Greater Good Science Center promote well-being in the world!
