Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) - A CGA is an account established to support non-profits while achieving income tax savings. You transfer your cash or appreciated property to the Cypress College Foundation in exchange for our promise to pay you fixed payments (with rates based on your age) for the rest of your life.
Beneficiary Designation - A beneficiary designation gift is a simple and affordable way to make a gift to support the Cypress College Foundation. You can designate the Foundation as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment or bank account, or of your life insurance policy.
Please keep the Cypress College Foundation in mind as you organize your anual gift planning.

Usually, this includes obtaining an acknowledgment letter from the charity before filing a return and retaining a cancelled check or credit card receipt for contributions of cash. |
