How To Give

How To Give

There are many ways you can give to CSULB. Most gift plans provide tax benefits, and some even provide income to you for life. Click on a gift plan below to learn more.


You can make a gift to CSULB in your will or trust.

Charitable Gift Annuity

In exchange for your gift of cash or appreciated property, the University will pay you fixed income for the rest of your life. Payout rates are based on your age and do not fluctuate with market conditions.

Charitable Remainder Unitrust

A charitable unitrust allows you to receive income for the rest of your life. The remainder funds your favorite program or project at CSULB.

Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust

A charitable annuity trust provides you fixed income for the rest of your life or for a term of years, then the remainder will go to CSULB.

Charitable Lead Trust

For a period of years, a charitable lead trust will make payments to CSULB to support your favorite project or program. At the end of the term, your family receives the remainder at substantial tax savings.

Sale and Unitrust

You can create a charitable unitrust by giving only a portion of your property to fund a charitable remainder trust. When the entire property sells you receive cash and income for life.

Give it Twice Trust

You may be looking for a way to provide your children with income while making a gift to charity. The Give it Twice Trust is a popular option that allows you to transfer your IRA at death to a term of years unitrust.

Reserved Life Estate

If you are planning to gift your fully paid off home to the University in your estate plans, you may want to consider a reserved life estate. You could receive a current tax deduction and still be able to live in your home for life.

IRA Rollover

On January 1, 2013, Congress passed legislation to avert the fiscal cliff. The law includes several important provisions that will allow you to support the causes you believe in using your Individual Retirement Account (IRA).
