New: Cryptocurrency Giving

Cryptocurrency, also known as Virtual Currency or “Crypto,” is a digital asset designed to function as an alternative to sovereign fiat currency (US Dollars, for example) whereby transactions between two parties are verified through a public, distributed ledger, also known as a blockchain. Visit our website to find more information and to make a gift of cryptocurrency.

Give a Gift of Stock and Bonds

A gift of stocks or bonds is a great way to support CBU. This charitable gift is typically tax-deductible and may avoid capital gains taxes. 

Give a Gift In Kind

You can also help make a difference by donating non-monetary goods that can be used to help advance the mission of CBU.

Gifts-in-Kind range from real estate, equipment and books to intangible personal property like securities, patents and licenses. These gifts are highly valuable and can greatly
benefit the university both now and in the future. 

Give a Gift of Real Estate

A gift of a property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, or commercial property) can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real estate, you may
avoid paying capital gains tax by donating it to CBU. 

Give a Gift of Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift. 

Planned Giving

The Palm Drive Legacy Society recognizes alumni and friends who have invested in California Baptist University’s future through a planned gift.

Examples of a planned gift include:
• Bequests and trusts
• Annuities
• Charitable IRA rollovers
• Beneficiary designations 

Give a Gift of Insurance

A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors consider making a gift and help further our mission.
