Your support of the Beach Fund has never been more important. We’ve all had our worlds turned upside-down by the global pandemic, and this crisis is hitting our student population particularly hard. Many are from low-income and working-class families, and they continue to need our help.
This year, we’re making a special appeal for unrestricted gifts. In 2020, we saw just how crucial it was to have a flexible source of funding that would allow us to respond efficiently and effectively to unexpected needs. Because unrestricted dollars give us the ability to fill critical gaps in funding, your generous response will allow us to respond in the most helpful ways possible to students who are struggling to stay fed, housed, and in school.
“Nationally, undergraduate enrollment is down by 4% across all sectors, but public four-year institutions such as the Cal States saw the smallest declines, according to preliminary data from the National Student Clearinghouse.”

Let’s keep the momentum going! Together, we can help CSULB students — a population that is among the most likely to be affected by the economic downturn — remain in college, achieve their dreams, and create a better, brighter world. And, remember, every gift matters!
