I am excited to highlight the profound impact of our donors’
philanthropic support during the 2021-22 fiscal year—and
to express my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your
unwavering commitment to the California State University and
the students we are so privileged to serve.
Your generosity demonstrates a firm belief in the transformative
power of higher education and the lifelong, life-changing
opportunities that come with a CSU degree. This year’s gifts
will elevate the lives of many thousands of Californians—both
within and beyond our universities—and help shape the future
prosperity of our great state.
Transformational gifts power the future by enabling projects
such as California State University, Bakersfield’s Mahatma
Gandhi Fellowship for Social Entrepreneurship, which will
encourage young entrepreneurs to operate environmentally
and socially sustainable businesses. At Sonoma State
University, funding for the campus’s 2022 Summer Bridge
Program created a smooth and supportive college transition
for Sonoma State's most educationally vulnerable first-year
students. And a generous gift to California State University,
Chico’s Center for Regenerative Agriculture and Resilient
Systems will help grow the number of undergraduate and
graduate students participating in applied research.
These, of course, are just a few examples. The stories included in this report are a testament to your extraordinary commitment to the
CSU and its mission. They are a sampling of how donor support
deeply touches so many individuals and plays a key role in
educating the next generation of talented and diverse leaders.
On behalf of the entire CSU community, we are forever grateful.
