Legacy Society

The Legacy Society honors and recognizes individuals who make a commitment to scholarship of the highest caliber by including University of California Press in their estate plans. If you have made such a provision, informing us of those plans enables us to properly express our gratitude. Please note that information regarding the size or type of your gift is not required. Membership in the Legacy Society includes:

  • Recognition in UC Press's Annual Report and on a permanent donor plaque gracing the UC Press Library, unless you prefer to remain anonymous
  • Invitations to special events
  • Subscription to the UC Press newsletter


You are eligible for membership in the Legacy Society if you have included University of California Press or the UC Press Foundation in your estate plans. There are many options for making such a commitment, several of which are described on our Gift Planning page.
