Membership Dues FAQ
Q: Can I participate in alumni activities if I have not paid my dues?
A: In recognition of the importance to UCSF of strong alumni relations, the services and benefits of the Alumni Association of UCSF and your school alumni association are available to all alumni, without regard to whether they have paid their membership dues.
Q: You have asked that dues payments be made to the UCSF Foundation. Why?
A: This is largely for administrative convenience, so that the UCSF Foundation’s website can be used to receive payments. The amounts received will be maintained and used separately for alumni and student activities relating to each School or Division.
Q: Are my dues deductible for federal and state tax purposes?
A: The payments will be used by UCSF to carry on various student and alumni-related services and programs for the ultimate benefit of UCSF. As noted above, there is no longer any “quid pro quo” or exchange of dues for benefits. Each alumnus or alumna is entitled to participate in alumni programs and receive alumni services whether or not dues have been paid. Accordingly, these payments may be tax deductible. We cannot give tax advice to our alumni and we suggest that you consult your own tax advisor on this issue.
Q: Will I receive a receipt for my membership dues?
A: Yes, you will receive a gift receipt stating that no goods or services were received in connection with your payment.
Q: Will UCSF membership dues now be called gifts or donations?
A: At this point, we are still using the term dues.
Q: Do my membership dues qualify for matching gifts?
A: It depends on matching gifts policies of your employer. Some employers exclude alumni memberships from their matching gift programs, so members should check their company’s matching gift policies.
