Planned Giving

Leave a legacy at California Baptist University by providing current and future funding through cash, equity or property. Planned gifts can be given for any amount and for any purpose whether for current or deferred use. They also help serve the needs of the university, while suiting the interest of the donor. Types of planned gifts include:

  • Wills and bequests
  • IRA Rollovers
  • Beneficiary designations

Give a Gift of Stock and Bonds

A gift of stocks or bonds is a great way to support CBU. One of the many benefits is that they are a way to get a tax-deductible gift while avoiding capital gains taxes.  

Give a Gift of Real Estate

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

Give a Gift-In-Kind

You can also help make a difference by donating nonmonetary goods that can be used to help advance the mission of California Baptist University. Gifts-In-Kind range from tangible personal property like 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 Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax-deferred plans, is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a gift of your retirement assets, you will help further our work.

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.

There are many other ways to support CBU. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of University Advancement at (951) 343-4215 by email at GivetoCBU@calbaptist.edu.
