Alumni and friends donated $172.3 million in private support for CSU’s 2014-2015 fiscal year, shattering the previous record set in 2014-15 by nearly $29 million. In addition, CSU saw the largest single cash gift in University history and set a record for total donors – more than 34,000 – along with its best-ever alumni participation, 10.34 percent.
These gifts provide scholarships for deserving students, help support life-changing research, bolster hundreds of outreach programs, and provide funds to build and renovate state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities. Their impact touches every corner of CSU’s beautiful campus.
More importantly, this record-breaking support comes at a critical time, significantly outpacing state support for higher education.
