How to Make Your Gift
Your real property may be gifted to Cal Lutheran by executing or signing a deed transferring ownership. You may deed part or all of your real property. Your gift will generally be based on the property's fair market value, which must be established by an independent appraisal.
Please contact us if the property you wish to give has existing debt or a mortgage. Check with us on the capital gains tax implications of your gift. You also may be interested in life income options.
CLU Annual Fund
The CLU Annual Fund allows you to support the University's growth and consistent high-quality education.
A Cal Lutheran education changes lives. When you support student scholarships you can change lives too.
Leave a lasting legacy through special gifts that are specific to your interests.
Planned gifts, such as bequests and annuities, can be a wonderful way to provide for your family's future as well as the future of Cal Lutheran.
