Aleck and Nancy Darr

Aleck and Nancy Darr
"We both know how much it means to get help when you need it." Aleck and Nancy Darr are members of the UC Santa Cruz community who have included UCSC in their will. Aleck is an alumnus and according to him, his wife Nancy could be an honorary Kresge College alumna from the number of times they've both attended the Dickens Universe, an annual literary event on campus that studies the works of Charles Dickens.

"When we retired, we were used to putting money into our 401K plans. Because we don't have any children, we agreed that the best way for us to continue to invest in the future would be to put money into the two universities that gave us our own futures," Nancy said. Both Sacramento State University and UC Santa Cruz benefit from the Darr's generosity.

"After we're gone, our estate will support the Darr Endowment for Student Scholarships at Stevenson College. We're both the first in our families to go to college. I never would have made it through school if I hadn't had scholarships", Nancy said.

In addition to their ongoing support of Stevenson College, the Darr's have included a percentage of their estate to support the Dickens Universe. "Including a percentage of our estate to each of our interests means each of our interests will get supported," Aleck said. "That's what matters to us."
