Giving To The California State University
With more than 450,000 students and 47,000 faculty and staff members, the CSU is the largest four-year university in the world. Many people are surprised to learn, however, that state appropriations account for only 75 percent of a CSU student's education and the balance is partly provided by private support. CSU campuses depend on income from a variety of sources to support faculty success and a quality learning experience.
Charitable contributions help the CSU recruit and retain the best faculty, provide modern libraries and well-equipped facilities, offer cutting edge technology and service, and extend opportunities to students who might not otherwise afford college.
Who are these exceptional contributors? People like you - parents, students, alumni, faculty, staff, small and large businesses, foundations, government partners and others.
