More Ways to Give

  • Cash gifts may be made at any time by cash, wire transfer and money order. 
  • Payroll deduction allows Cal State East Bay employees to make monthly gifts to their programs of choice, for as little as $5 each paycheck. Simply complete this form and return it to Payroll. 
  • Pledges provide donors an opportunity to dedicate their giving to a specific project or cause for up to five years. Regular payments toward the commitment can be made using cash, credit cards, securities and other assets.
  • Cal State East Bay also accepts gifts-in-kind, gifts of securities, including stocks, bonds and mutual funds; tangible personal property or other physical assets — including artwork, books, equipment or specialized instruments — that are of value to the university; and real property, all of which can benefit your program of choice at the university while providing relief from capital gains taxes and other expenses. 

Cal State East Bay’s Division of University Advancement manages all philanthropic giving to the university. Please contact us if you’d like more information on how you can give.
