Designated Gifts

For donors who have a personal connection to a specific college or program, designated gifts can be particularly meaningful. In making a designated gift, you make an impact on projects that are important to you. Click on the links below to learn more about each program. 

Unrestricted Gifts

Some of the most important gifts Cal State LA receives are unrestricted. These allow the University the flexibility to direct resources where the need is greatest. Providing cutting-edge programs can be expensive. Technology and needs can change rapidly, and your unrestricted gift provides for a greater range of options. Visit the Cal State LA Fund to learn more about unrestricted gifts.
