Did you know you can make a gift that leaves your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged?
Wills & Trusts
Need to preserve your assets during your lifetime? Plan a gift to us that will only take effect after your other obligations have ceased.

Regardless of your income, you can make a significant contribution to Chabot Space & Science Center by naming us as a beneficiary on your policy. See our planned giving section for more information.
By donating building or property, you transfer a valuable asset in exchange for powerful tax benefits.
Send Your Car to Space!
You can give us many kinds of personal property that enhance our mission and provide tax benefits to you. Chabot has partnered with the nonprofit organization, Cars for Causes, an organization that will sell your old car for you and pass on 70% of the net sale amount to Chabot (26% of the proceeds go to Cars for Causes other charities, and 4% to administrative fees, the lowest in the industry). Go to this link to donate your old car.
Employer Matching Program
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to Chabot Space & Science Center may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses as well.
Learn more about any of the above opportunities by contacting Director of Institutional Advancement, Melissa Russo, at (510) 336-7379 or MRusso@ChabotSpace.org.
