2011-12 Philanthropic Annual Report

California State University, Los Angeles

Contribution Highlights

  • Two grateful alumni established a faculty fellowship to honor their favorite former professors at CSU Los Angeles and to foster excellence in teaching and learning. Their desire in creating the fellowship is to help other faculty members have as strong of an impact on future generations of CSU Los Angeles students. The fellowship is named for the faculty members who inspired them: The Ethan Lipton/Ali Modarres Fellowship for Excellence in Teaching and Mentoring.
  • 1954 alumna of modern languages left a significant portion of her estate to benefit student scholarships and the library at CSU Los Angeles. Her long-term involvement with the university began with gifts to the Annual Fund. She later joined the Presidentís Associate annual giving club and became a life member of the CSULA Alumni Association. She was a regular recipient of the universityís estate planning mailings, Envisions, through which she was inspired to make her estate gift to CSU Los Angeles. Her generous gift of $2.3 million is established as an endowment and will greatly benefit the university for years to come.
  • To help alleviate the predicted shortage of nursing and allied health professionals across the state, the university continues to receive numerous gifts and grants for scholarships, program improvement, equipment upgrades and to help support the new Doctorate of Nursing Practice. Over $700,000 in private funding was received this year. Part of this is testimony to the strength of CSU Los Angelesí graduate nursing program, which is consistently listed among the top five programs in California by U.S. News and World Report.
  • As the Honors College at CSU Los Angeles enters its second full year of operations, it has inspired private philanthropy for student scholarships, civic engagement programming and curriculum development, participation in national conferences and undergraduate student participation in research, scholarly and creative activities.
