Ways To Give: Guardian Scholars

Cash Gifts

Checks should be made payable to the Cal State Fullerton Philanthropic Foundation (CSFPF). Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express are also accepted.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by current or retired employees. This is an easy way to double or even triple your gift. To find out if you or your spouse’s company has a matching gift policy and if it will match gifts to athletics, contact your personnel or human resources office, or click here to look up your company.


Our Guardian Scholars need and deserve first-class facilities in which to study. We are continually upgrading and improving our facilities, and contributions to capital projects are vital to these efforts.


Endowments are an excellent way to ensure the continued support of Guardian Scholars. Each year earned interest is used while the principal is reinvested. An endowed scholarship or program fund can be in your name or the name of a loved one. You can also contribute to already established endowment funds.


We can accept certain gifts and services that would reduce expenses. These are subject to campus approval and IRS regulations.

Car Donations

We can accept donations of cars, boats, trucks and RVs. The contribution is made through an approved third party (National Charity Support Foundation or Car 4 Causes), with the proceeds providing you a tax deductible gift for the designation of your choice.

Planned Gifts

Planned Gifts include stocks, bequests, trusts, life insurance, personal gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, real property, securities, and real estate. Cal State Fullerton welcomes the opportunity to work with donors and their advisors in designing a gift that meets the financial needs of the donor as well as Guardian Scholars.
