Giving Oportunities

The best legacy we can leave to future generations is education. With this in mind, the Universidad Central del Caribe (UCC) has embarked on various initiatives whose objectives are to nurture and sustain the institution.

Making your donation to the UCC Scholarship Fund before December 31st, you can benefit from incentives offered and deductions allowed by the Puerto Rico Internal Revenue Tax Code. Act 1 approved on January 31st, 2011 (“Act 1-2011”), constitutes the Puerto Rico Internal Revenue Tax Code, which provides corporations and individuals higher deductions for donations to qualified non-for-profit organizations (among which are educational, community and faith-based organizations). In this way, according to the Act’s Explanatory Memorandum, the Government recognizes that “non-for-profit organizations provide important services to citizens that the Government itself cannot provide as efficiently.”

The UCC Endowment Fund

Permanent in character, its return destined to give support to those university projects which without your help would be difficult if not impossible to realize. By making your donation to this fund, you are actively contributing to relieving the institution’s needs and those of future health professionals. When you contribute to the Endowment Fund, you assist in our priorities, which are:
• Award scholarships to students
• Strengthen the technological infrastructure
• Improve the institution’s physical facilities
• Lend support to scientific research

 

Direct Scholarship Fund

To counteract the existing situation that financial aid for medical students in Puerto Rico is insufficient, the UCC and its Board of Directors have launched various initiatives. As opposed to the Endowment Fund, wherein only the yields are utilized, the Scholarship Funds raised are granted in their entirety at the commencement of each academic year.
