California State University, Fullerton

Titan Fund

 

Your annual gift to the Titan Fund is essential to the university in providing support each year to programs across campus. While you are welcome to support a specific college, program, or scholarship, of particular value are unrestricted gifts that allow resources to be directed to areas having the greatest need.

The Titan Fund focuses on unrestricted gifts - gifts that are not earmarked for specific programs or purposes. Gifts to the Titan Fund are used to support each of our eight colleges, Student Affairs, academic programs, scholarships, athletics, and the library.


Matching

Many companies will match the donations of their employees and retirees. Please check with your human resources department to see if your gift qualifies, or visit our matching gift page for more information.

You receive a tax deduction for your cash gift and can claim the loss on your tax return.

Learn more about gifts of securities or contact your appropriate Director of Development in University Advancement.

Pledges allow you fulfill a gift commitment over a number of years, allowing you make a significant gift — and a significant impact — while spreading out payments over time.

By giving real estate to Cal State Fullerton, you receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the property with no capital gains tax on the appreciated value. You can also give your home, but live there for your lifetime. A life estate agreement allows you to receive a current income tax deduction and also reduce your estate tax liability. Real estate may also be used for planned gifts.
