Can I give to more than one project at a time?

Absolutely! On the donation form you will see "Add a Gift to this Donation" on the third line. This will provide a drop-down menu where you can select any of our other current crowdfunding projects to support. 

Is my contribution tax-deductible?

The Cal State Fullerton Philanthropic Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. Your gift qualifies for tax-deduction in accordance with IRS regulations during the calendar year that you make your gift. Consult your tax professional for more information. 

Will I get a receipt for tax purposes? 

Yes! You will immediately receive a receipt of your credit card transaction. An official gift receipt for your financial records will be sent to you via email within two weeks. For questions regarding your tax receipt please contact Advancement Services at 657-278-2118 or

Is there a minimum gift amount? 

Cal State Fullerton's crowdfunding platform accepts gifts of $5 or more. 

What if I am experiencing an error on the donation page? 

Please note credit card numbers should be entered without spaces. Delete symbols such as "#" and "&" (for example, Apt #31). We have found that this "fixes" most of the processing problems. If your gift form still is not working, please call us directly at 657-278-4180. 

Is there another project or fund not listed that you would like to support?
