Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes. California Lutheran University is a non-profit institution. You will receive an email receipt after you’ve made your gift.
Do you accept gifts in kind (GIK) for Giving Tuesday?
Generally speaking the university is constrained on space and will only accept GIKs under rare circumstances, and we require the donor to provide documentation that establishes the market value of the item from an authorized appraiser. Even in these cases, the university must reserve the right not to accept the donated item.
