Recognition Programs

Depending on the type and size of your gift, Cal State East Bay offers recognition programs. These programs of distinction give their members unique benefits, including University publications, recognition in our Honor Roll of Donors, as well as special invitations to University ceremonies, events, and receptions.

President's Circle

The members of the President’s Circle are among Cal State East Bay’s closest partners and friends.  They display a deep commitment with strong, consistent private support for the University’s work and mission.  President’s Circle members contribute an annual gift, or a combination of annual gifts, of  at least $5,000 to the University.  Membership includes recognition in our Honor Roll of Donors, as well as special invitations to University ceremonies, events, and receptions with University leadership.  To learn more about the President’s Circle, please contact Kate Shaheed @ (510)885-2839 or kate.shaheed@csueastbay.edu 

Heritage Society

The Heritage Society honors faculty, staff, alumni, and friends who have named Cal State East Bay in their estate plans. Gifts include bequests, trusts, life insurance policies, annuities, real estate, and pension plans. These impactful gifts may be directed within the University to support specific colleges, departments, scholarships, programs or organizations.

A planned gift may create the potential for you to participate at a greater level of significance than you thought to be possible, while also providing the opportunity to achieve your financial, philanthropic and estate planning goals.

Cal State East Bay's Office of Gift Planning offers information and online tools to guide you through a variety of gift options. For more information, visit the Gift Planning Web Site.

We encourage you to seek advice from your personal legal or tax counsel in determining your individual charitable tax deductions. For more information about the Heritage Society or Planned Gifts, please contact Anthony Macias, Director of Planned and Major Gifts at 510.885.4035, or e-mail anthony.macias@csueastbay.edu. There is no cost or obligation.
