Planned Giving

Planned giving is an increasingly popular way to give the gift of education. By including a gift to Sacramento State in their estate plans, friends of the University gain the flexibility to provide life-changing opportunities to the students of the future, while enjoying benefits of the present--including potential tax savings and life-income possibilities.

Learn more about how making Sacramento State part of your estate plan can help you make a larger gift than you may have thought possible, often with financial benefits for you.

Our professionals can help you tailor your bequests so they work for your situation, including protecting loved ones and maximizing tax benefits associated with securities, savings, real estate and other assets.

Giving Guide

Your support of Sacramento State provides life-changing opportunities for our students, preparing them to be leaders in their professions and communities.

Donor contributions allow the University to offer the affordable, high-quality education that is not possible through state funding alone. It strengthens our ability to offer access to talented faculty who are at the top of their fields, to hands-on learning that translates to real-world applications and to leadership opportunities that motivate well beyond graduation.

You can direct your support to programs and students across campus.
