For Advisors

If you are advising a client who is considering a planned gift or bequest to Humboldt State University, we welcome the opportunity to work with you in helping your clients. Please use the resources and tools below and feel free to contact us anytime for further information or assistance.

Here is some basic information about our organization:

Legal Name

All charitable gifts should be directed to “Humboldt State University Foundation, a California 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, charitable organization, or its successor, Federal Tax Identification Number: 94-6077724.”

Tax I.D. Number

The Humboldt State University Foundation's Tax ID number is 94-6077724.

Consistent with safeguarding its own interests, Humboldt State University tries to make arranging a gift for the organization’s benefit as easy as possible, and we strive to honor the intentions of all our donors. Accordingly, we hope the following will prove helpful:

If one of your clients arranges an estate gift for the benefit of Humboldt State University, we would very much appreciate knowing about the gift, both so we can express our sincere gratitude and – as noted above – so we can make sure we will be able to fulfill the donor’s wishes. Of course, we respect the fact that in some cases, donors prefer to remain anonymous.

Still, if you are willing to serve as an intermediary, a client of yours can share information about his or her plans without divulging his or her identity.
