Positive Change One Gift at a Time
The Senior Class Gift is a meaningful way for graduating seniors to make a difference in the areas of campus that impacted them the most during their time at The Beach. Gifts can strengthen the academic programs and research opportunities in a college, expand internships offered through Academic Affairs, or support campus-wide initiatives like mental health resources in Student Affairs, to name a few.
Participation is GOAL!
Rather than dollars, the Senior Class Gift focuses on participation. When seniors support their class gift, it shows others (Alumni, local businesses, and members of the community) that CSULB and its students are worth investing in. It creates an environment that amplifies philanthropic support and sparks the desire to give.
Our goal is to have 200 seniors participate in the Senior Class Gift.
Seniors who make a gift of $24 (in honor of your grad year) will be able to dedicate their gift to the person who encouraged you most during your academic journey. It can be a family member, friend, professor, coach, etc. who made a positive impact in your life during your studies at CSULB. Dedicated gifts will be featured on our website under the Senior Class Giving page.
Seniors who make a gift of $49 or more can also dedicate their class gift and will receive a mybeach senior grad cord, a token of our gratitude that symbolizes making your very first philanthropic gift to the university (to be worn at commencement).
******All donors (regardless of gift size) will be featured during each commencement ceremony and included in the senior class donor honor roll on the Senior Class Giving website page.
