Planned Gifts:
Since its founding, Cal has benefited from visionary supporters who made planned gifts. Their generosity has been used to support undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, faculty chairs, research, infrastructure, and other campus priorities.

A planned gift may enable you to make a more significant gift than you thought possible while at the same time allowing you to achieve your financial, philanthropic and estate planning goals. To that end, there are a myriad of easy giving options from which you can choose - from naming us as a beneficiary in your will to a more complex trust arrangement.
