Gifts of Stock, Bonds, Mutual Funds

​If you would like to make a larger donation to support an area of interest to you, but prefer to spread out the payments, you can make a pledge and we can set up a convenient payment plan. Please email or call 714-628-4888 for more information.


​​Annual Named Scholarships

​With a pledge of $500 or more a year for five years, you can fund a scholarship and name it after a loved one, your company, your family or yourself.  You can also designate criteria for your scholarship (subject to state and federal legal restrictions). Examples of scholarships that can be created include scholarships for veterans, student athletes, specific academic majors, transfer students or students with particular professional goals. For more information about scholarships in general or about setting up a named scholarship, click here​, call 714-628-4790 or email


​​Endowed Scholarships

​If you would like to leave a lasting legacy in an area of personal interest to you or in honor of a loved one, establish an endowed student scholarship. The funds you donate are invested responsibly so that they last in perpetuity, while some or all of the annual earnings from the endowment support a scholarship for a deserving student.  As with annual named scholarships, you determine the name of the endowed scholarship, as well as criteria that reflect your values or interests.
