UCSD Legacy Society changes its name to York Society

The Office of Gift Planning at UCSD has changed the name of its donor recognition group from “Legacy Society” to “York Society” in honor of the late Herb York, founding chancellor of the university. The York Society acknowledges individuals who provide essential philanthropic support to the university through annuities, bequests, trusts and other planned gifts. York, who died in May, was a UCSD professor and administrator, a world-renowned physicist and ambassador for peace.
