Though CSULB is a publicly supported institution, generous contributions to the Beach Fund are critical to keeping the University thriving. Supporting the Beach Fund allows the President and Deans to address the ongoing, immediate needs of the University. Contributions to all areas enhance state support and student fees to provide all students with access to a quality education. Such areas most impacted by your support are:
None of these successes can be accomplished with state funding alone. More than 20,000 alumni, parents and friends of the University contribute to the Beach Fund each year. Gifts to the Beach Fund make it possible for our gifted students to earn the lifelong benefits of a quality CSULB education and protect the value of degrees already earned. Please feel free to contact the Office of Annual and Special Giving by phone at (562) 985-5294 or via email at BeachFund@csulb.edu.
Every graduating senior is contacted near graduation to initiate a pledge in support of the campus. Seniors are asked to donate $150 to purchase a brick to be permanently placed in the Alumni Brick Plaza. Gifts of $149 or less are designated to the Annual Fund to be used for essential campus needs. Seniors have proven to be generous and loyal donors to the University.
