How Your Gift Helps [charity_name]

Each person who makes a gift to Humboldt State University has a unique reason for that gift.  What is your reason?

Perhaps you benefited from a professor's commitment to working closely with and mentoring Humboldt State students and you'd like to help future generations enjoy a similar experience.

Maybe you appreciate the many hands-on student learning opportunities found only at HSU — from art museum curator-ships to wildlife restoration internships — and you're interested in strengthening these unique programs.

Perhaps you recognize the value of wide ranging research projects, such as our renewable energy laboratory or oceanic research center, which offer undergraduate students in-depth learning experiences that are available nowhere else.

While there are countless reasons to give, one thing holds true: at Humboldt State, your generosity has a deep and lasting impact on students' lives. No matter what you choose to support — or how much you choose to support it — you can be sure that your gift will make a difference.

Benefits of Giving

In addition to supporting the students and mission of Humboldt State University, a planned gift can provide you with substantial tax advantages, especially on gifts of stocks and real estate. The total income, estate, and capital gains tax savings and the probate expense savings can come close to the amount transferred. The benefits include: 

  • Income Tax Deductions
  • Reduced Capital Gains Taxes
  • Reduced Estate Tax
  • Income for Life

Simply by taking advantage of incentives the IRS provides, you and your advisor can craft a gift that fits your needs, as well as the needs of Humboldt State. A planned gift makes it possible for you, your loved ones, and HSU to all benefit.

We want to be sure we can fulfill your wishes. If you have any questions, please contact:
