There are many ways to give to El Camino College. Our Foundation team is available to work with you to create a meaningful legacy gift that will make a
direct impact on access to higher education and sustainable employment opportunities

You can support the work of the Foundation with a gift of cash or securities (stocks or bonds), real estate, or other personal assets.
When organizations donate goods or services, these donations are considered gifts-in-kind. In-kind donations help us further our work, and bring additional resources to El Camino students. Contributions large and small make a big difference.

For automobile or vehicle donations, the El Camino College Foundation has partnered with Cars2Charities, which has been a leader in the car donation industry for over 25 years. Find out more at El Camino College Foundation's Cars2Charities Donation Program page.
Income for Life for You … Benefit for Future Generations
A charitable gift annuity is an extraordinary way to make a gift, increase your income and slice your tax bill – all in one transaction! Our charitable gift annuity program was created as a service to our many friends who have expressed a desire to make a gift of significance, while still retaining income from the gift property during their lives.
A charitable gift annuity is a contract in which you exchange a gift of cash or securities for a fixed income each year for the rest of your life (or for the lives of two people). Your gift annuity offers five distinct advantages:
You can choose how frequently payments will be made – quarterly, semiannually, annually; single-life or two-life annuity; cash or securities to fund your gift. Cash gifts allow maximum tax-free payments; gifts of securities allow you to minimize capital gains taxes.
A bequest to the Foundation can be for a specific amount, a percentage of your estate,
real estate or property, or what will be left after you have provided for your survivors
and can be designated for a specific program or division, such as textbooks, scholarships,
fine arts or sciences.
Cash, securities or real estate are transferred to a trust that pays you joint- or
single-lifetime income. You select the rate of return, set a fixed or variable annual
payment, avoid capital gains taxes and receive an additional tax deduction.
An endowment is a gift of financial resources that provides a stable base for funding. Endowments
ensure that your contribution supports not only our current students, but also the
next generation of students.
The Employee Giving Program offers employees the opportunity to make tax-deductible gifts that support key aspects of El Camino College’s mission.
Our employees play an important role in advancing the Foundation’s vision of providing educational opportunities and success for every student of El Camino College.
