Recognizing Our Donors

If CSUF students and faculty are the heart of our University, then donors are the backbone.

The ways to make a difference are as diverse as our donors: scholarships; endowed chairs and professorships; special programs and centers; the building and renovation of facilities. We salute the many donors since our founding who have helped CSUF become the exceptional institution it is today, and invite you to join their distinguished ranks.
