CSUSM Staff Member and Employee Donor

What motivates you to be a CSUSM donor?
I am motivated by knowing that I contribute to the advancement of the campus by my work but also with my donation. There are so many great programs for students and many scholarships available for hard working students. I hope that the amount that I share as a donor can help make college affordable to a deserving student.

Why did you choose to give via monthly payroll deduction?
By making a monthly contribution I know that I am giving a little bit back to the university. It is easy to sign up and it's tax deductible!

Did you choose to support President's Circle and the M. Gordon Clarke Field House for any specific reason?
I have worked at CSUSM since 1993 and have seen many changes! The President's Circle along with the Field House are areas I personally contribute. I feel like they both focus on supporting the many educational opportunities offered to our talented and motivated students.

What would you say to a colleague who is not currently a donor?
To my colleagues, please consider donating! The campus can grow further through your generous gift. Especially if you are an alumni, being a donor is very rewarding. You can help make a difference in the lives of the future students.

Dr. Stephen Tsui

CSUSM Faculty Member and Employee Donor

What motivates you to be a CSUSM donor?
I'm in it for the students, specifically to support scholarships since I know the cost of education is so high.

Why did you choose to give via monthly payroll deduction?
It's a fairly painless way to donate little installments that I don't really notice.

Did you choose to support the Student Philanthropy Fund for any specific reason?
I was an undergraduate coming from a blue collar family background, so financial aid and scholarships were the only way that I could afford school. Giving to the Student Philanthropy Fund is doing a small part to help give students the same opportunity that I had.
