Support us

Your donation can support scholarships, new and improved facilities, research opportunities for students, or the university's greatest need. The State of California provides a portion of our basic funding, but we rely on private donations to make up the remainder of our budget. Donations from individuals, foundations, and corporations allow us to deliver an accessible, high-quality education to our students.



The mission of the CSUMB Alumni Association is to provide opportunities for alumni to remain engaged, stay connected, and give back to current and future students to support the mission of the university and enhance the well-being of alumni.

Outright gifts and pledges

By making an outright gift of cash, your gift will have an immediate impact at CSU Monterey Bay, and you will receive a charitable tax deduction for the year of the gift. You may also consider extending your generosity with a long-term pledge that allows you to claim deductions each year you make a pledge payment and enables CSUMB to fund long-term or future projects.

Planned gifts and legacy giving

With careful planning, your generosity can bring you tax incentives and other benefits, such as income for life, which may enable you to make a greater impact CSU Monterey Bay than you may have previously envisioned. Learn more on our planned giving website.

If you would like information on the benefits (tax, life income and otherwise) of making a Legacy Gift, we have a complete program in place to offer confidential assistance and answers, free of charge. Please contact Lisette Miles for more information.

Many charitable contributions offer significant tax incentives. Try our gift calculator* to get an idea of what might be possible.

*The calculator provides an educational illustration is not professional tax or legal advice; consult a qualified tax advisor about your specific situation.
