Planned Giving

Here at UCI MIND, we are researching the various ways to make your memories last a lifetime.  As Orange County’s only national and state designated Alzheimer’s disease center, we support thousands of individuals and their families each year in learning how to cope and overcome the challenges of Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases.

On these pages, you will learn about the various ways in which you can not only help others make memories that last a lifetime but also help secure your memory, your legacy, in the lives of those that your estate gift will help.

As your philanthropic partner, we have provided you with some tools which we hope will prove useful as you consider supporting UCI MIND. These tools will show you how, by helping others, you can also help yourself – through such ways as a charitable income stream and tax mitigation.

If you have questions regarding a specific plan, please contact Roland Ho at 949.824.6454 or We look forward to helping you achieve your goals.
