Ways to Give to the Annual Fund
There are many ways to make a gift to the Pomona College Annual Fund. One might be especially advantageous to you at a particular time. Feel free to call the Office of Annual Giving at (909) 621-8142 for more information at any time.
Types of Gifts
Gifts of cash
A gift of cash is available immediately for use by the College and, in most cases, is 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.)
Gifts of securities
Gifts of 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.) When engaging in stock transfers, please contact Janis Moormann, Trust Administrator, at (909) 621-8115. Learn more about making a gift of securities.
Use your Visa, MasterCard or American Express to give securely online.

Making a Gift By Credit Card
A quick and easy way to make a gift to the Annual Fund is with a credit card. Pomona accepts VISA, MasterCard and American Express. A credit card gift often provides flexibility for donors who wish to make larger gifts by spreading payments out over several months or the entire year. Many donors reap benefits such as frequent flyer miles by contributing using this method. You may now submit a gift online through the secure gift form, or by calling the Office of Annual Giving, toll-free at 1-888-736-9425.
Please have the following information available when calling
- Name of donor
- Class year of donor, if applicable
