Message from the Vice Chancellor

The 23 campuses of the California State University have had an outstanding year in developing private resources to support the academic mission of the CSU. Despite an uncertain economic climate, campus development programs exceeded their fundraising accomplishments of last year and posted the largest amount of voluntary support in the CSU’s history.

Major successes at several CSU campuses brought total voluntary support to a record $257.2 million. Thanks in part to a significant increase in foundation and corporate giving and success in major fundraising campaigns, more than half of the CSU campuses exceeded their fundraising totals of the previous year.

The following report provides an overview of the work at each campus in attracting private, external support to the CSU. It also provides a 10-year giving history for the CSU as a system and for each individual campus. We have included comparison data that charts the progress of the CSU as it has enhanced and refined its ability to generate private support. The strength of our development programs this past year leaves us well-positioned to support the educational, research, and academic needs of the people of California and the nation.
