Many CSULB donors make their contributions at the end of the year to ensure that they will receive the benefits of a charitable tax deduction.
One of the easiest ways to make a year-end gift is to contribute online. Access our online giving site by December 31 to make your gift.
To send a gift through the mail, print out and complete our Gift-Pledge Form. Please send your completed form, along with your check (payable to the “CSULB 49er Foundation”), to the following address:
CSULB 49er Foundation
6300 E. State University Drive, Suite 332
Long Beach, California 90815
Mailed gifts must be postmarked by December 31 to qualify for the 2017 charitable tax deduction.
Please note: If you wish to use a credit card to make your contribution, you must use our online giving site or call during business hours (see "By Phone" below).
Some donors prefer to personally deliver their gifts or to use a courier service to have their gifts delivered to CSULB. The delivery address for a courier service is as follows:
CSULB 49er Foundation/Alumni Records
6300 E. State University Drive, Suite 324
Long Beach, CA 90815
Delivered gifts must be received by university staff before 4:00 PM on December 28 to qualify for the 2017 charitable tax deduction.
If you wish to speak directly to a staff member, the Development team will be available to accept your credit card gift during the holiday season. To make a year-end gift by phone between December 26 and December 29, please call 562/985-5299 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. (note that the office will close early, at 1 p.m., on December 29). We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.
Some donors prefer the added tax benefits of giving long-term appreciated securities. Stock gifts can be made through December 28 but must be initiated by your broker in sufficient time to clear before the close of business on the 29th. To ensure that you are credited properly for your stock gift, please email Mary Ann Messing at MaryAnn.Messing@csulb.edu with the name, number of shares, and your contact information prior to initiating your stock transfer or fill out the Gift of Securities Notification Form and fax to 562/985-7951.
Your broker will require the following information:
1999 Avenue of the Stars, 24th Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90067
Phone: (310) 788-2053
DTC wire transfer number: 0015
Account name: CSULB 49er Foundation
