Thank you for your interest in the Catalyst for Change Scholarship (Supported by the Brotman Donor-Advised Fund, In Memory of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Ron Settles, and others).
The Brotman-Skoff Family, longtime supporters of math and science scholarships at CSULB, have made a new gift, designed to support our students during this time of great upheaval. The donors have pledged to match every dollar contributed to the Brotman Fund, up to $65,000. Our hope is that this gift will catalyze change that helps increase social justice and put an end to police brutality.
With the creation of this fund, Cal State Long Beach will become one of many universities throughout the country that have answered the call to establish lasting programs in memory of those lost to racially motivated violence.
The Brotman-Skoff Family has stipulated that the fund should support scholarships, as well as internships for students who are committed to studying and working on behalf of social justice.
Please help us attract and retain students who will bring new voices to our campus and to their chosen fields of endeavor — while honoring the memories of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Ron Settles, and others — through your investment in the Catalyst for Change Scholarship.
You are invited to participate in this important effort by making a donation of any size — remember, your dollars will have double the impact — to the Catalyst for Change Scholarship. Please make an online gift, or call our message line at 562-985-8475 and leave your name and number so our team can call you back to complete your credit card donation.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
