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 Barbara Zappas at 831-582-3070 or bzappas@csumb.edu.

Stocks, bonds, mutual funds

Gifts of securities (stocks, bonds and mutual funds) often offer an even greater tax benefit than other types of gifts. Giving securities is a simple and gratifying experience. To make a gift of securities, please fill out the form below.
