Planned Giving

The Titan Athletics Ontiveros Society is compromised of alumni, parents and friends of Cal State Fullerton that believe a strong athletics program can enhance a student-athlete’s experience both in the classroom and on the field of play.  Society members plan gifts to Titan Athletics to support the Titan tradition of athletic and academic excellence. 

The Ontiveros name honors the land grant ownership of Fullerton and other northern Orange County California cities.  Martina and Juan Pacifico Ontiveros were the original owners of thousands of acres of land across Fullerton, Brea and Placentia, including land that now is home to our campus.  The name implies the legacy of a historical continuum that celebrates Cal State Fullerton’s past as it advances towards the future.

There are various ways in which to participate in the Titan Athletics Ontiveros Society.  Each way represents a donor’s personal commitment to the Titan Athletics programs; whether it is a desire to provide scholarship assistance or program support for a certain sport.  Most forms of giving offer significant tax savings and should be examined in consultation with your financial advisor.  Types of planned gifts include:

  • Bequest in your will;
  • Life income gift;
  • Charitable gift annuity;
  • Charitable lead trust;
  • Retirement plan assets;
  • Living trust provision;
  • Residence or other real estate holdings.
