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.
The MyBeach program, housed within the Alumni Association, provides graduating CSULB seniors with an engaging experience during their last year at the Beach. This is created through event programming, and the promotion of Beach Pride in belonging to the Alumni Association, as well as through introducing a tradition of giving back to CSULB through the Alumni Association.
The Senior Giving Campaign, housed in the Beach Fund, allows current CSULB student fundraisers to reach out to our soon-to-be-grads to introduce them to a tradition of giving back, starting with the Senior Class Campaign.
