CAA’s giving benefits do not have a significant fair market value. Gifts are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

If a gift is made through charitable organizations or funds such as private foundations, donor advised funds, charitable trusts, IRA rollovers, etc., the organization or fund may need to decline benefits, especially if the benefits are more than incidental. Donors should consult their tax advisors to clarify all applicable tax rules.

Gifts count toward donor’s total lifetime giving to Cal. Gifts are also applied to The Campaign for the Cal Alumni Association and The Campaign for Berkeley.

*Included are your outright gifts, plus corporate matching gifts collected and applied to your giving record, as well as pledge payments made during the fiscal year (January 1–December 31).
**CAA is not responsible for lost or damaged parking passes. Passes will not be replaced. CAA is not responsible for and does not guarantee parking availability.
†The Charter Hill Society is a group of alumni, parents, and friends who share a lasting affinity for the University of California, Berkeley and an extraordinary commitment to preserving and enhancing its excellence in education, research, and public service.   Learn more
