How to Support the Collection
With shrinking state financial support, the Citrus Variety Collection is in need of a permanent source of funding. A Citrus Genetic Resources Assessment Task Force, composed of industry and university experts, evaluated the current status of the collection and recommended the establishment of an endowment fund to ensure the vital future of the Citrus Variety Collection at UCR.
Your tax-deductible contribution to the UCR Foundation (specify Citrus Variety Collection) will help preserve and expand this irreplaceable genetic treasure. Send donations by completing an online gift form to give with a credit card.
- Once on the University of California-Riverside donation site, ignore "Disbursing Unit" and "Department" options and go to straight to "Designate to a specific fund".
- Click on arrow on the right side of the box for "Designate to a specific fund", scroll down and select the "Citrus Variety Collection Endowed Fund". Once selected, the "Disbursing Unit" and "Department" options will automatically fill in.
- Fill in the remaining boxes with your information.
