Opportunity Drawing

Make a donation to enter a student into our Student Opportunity Drawing. Two Students will be selected during the event to receive one of the following:

  • $25 Donation: Every $25 donation enters 1 student into an Opportunity Drawing for the purchase of the winning students required schoolbooks for 1 school year.
    The average student spends $655 each year on textbooks, according to the National Association of College Stores, because many courses require pricey books that can cost up to $300 each.
  • $50 Donation: Every $50 donation enters 1 student into an Opportunity Drawing for a $500 credit on their Beach ID Card.
    The Beach ID Card is an essential form of identification which also doubles as a Beach Club debit card, a form of payment at campus eateries, computer & print labs, and retail locations. The Beach Card is also accepted by participating off-campus retailers. All students, faculty, and staff are required to have a CSULB ID.
