SUBJECT: Gifts Presented to Non-Employees and Organizations on the Behalf of the University
The presentation of gifts of moderate cost for business purposes to non-employees and organizations on behalf of UCSD either when tradition, commonly accepted institutional practice, or social custom dictates gift giving is appropriate and necessary. A gift is allowable when it can be demonstrated that the gift benefits UCSD, the gift is clearly necessary to UCSD's fulfillment of its role as a good community citizen, and the cost of the gift is reasonable in relation to the expected benefit.
Under no circumstances is it allowable to make a monetary gift to either non-employees or organizations on behalf of UCSD.
Business and Finance Bulletin (BFB) G-42, Gifts Presented to Non-Employees on Behalf of the University outlines the applicable UC policy. To access the policy on the Office of the President's web site:
