Ways to Give

The Annual Fund is able to receive gifts in a number of ways. Please see below for more information on our options and select what’s best for you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call (909) 607-6096 for more information.

Types of Gifts

  • One-Time Gifts of Cash: These gifts are available immediately for use by the College and, in most cases, are fully deductible for donors who itemize their federal income taxes. (If a cash gift totals more than 50% of adjusted gross income, the balance may be carried forward for up to five additional tax years.)
  • Recurring Gifts of Cash: A recurring gift is also available immediately for use by the College and provides ongoing support with a scheduled monthly or quarterly gift. To set up a recurring gift simply visit our secure online giving form or call (909) 607-6096.
  • Gifts of Securities: Appreciated securities may be deducted at full market value on the date of transfer to the College. (Securities that have been held for one year or more are deductible up to 30% of your adjusted gross income; the balance may be carried forward within the same limitation for up to five additional years.) Learn more about gifts of securities.
  • IRA Qualified Charitable Distributions: The IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution (“QCD”) provides an excellent opportunity to make gifts to Pomona College without incurring income taxes today or estate tax in the future. Learn more about QCD gifts.
