Other Ways to Give

A Gift of Property:  You may wish to transfer ownership of your property (real estate, works of art, etc.) and receive a charitable tax deduction. In addition, gifts of residual interest may be considered in which you may retain the use of the property during your lifetime. Benefits include:

  • Income tax deduction
  • Avoidance of capital gains tax
  • Continued use of your property for life in some instances
  • Your gift passes to CSPF outside of the estate process
  • Satisfaction of knowing CSPF will have the benefit of your gift in the future

CSPF Endowment Fund:  You have the opportunity to participate in the CSPF endowment fund by creating your own named fund that endows those activities in which you have an enduring interest. Benefits include:

  • Allows gifting over time with current tax savings
  • Creation of a lasting memorial as endowments are established in perpetuity
  • Extreme flexibility – plan can begin immediately or after a predetermined time

Minimum gift sizes and spending levels can vary. Please contact Patrick Heryford at 415-262-4433 or legacy@calparks.org for endowment information and to learn more about how you can help us protect our state parks for future generations.


Cash:   This type of gift is simple and eligible for an immediate charitable tax deduction.
