Giving Day

CSUSM Giving Day


Your love for Cal State San Marcos accomplished something BIG on Giving Day. In 24 hours, we not only surpassed our initial challenge match of $25,000, but your generosity inspired Jack Raymond, our Foundation Board Chair and matching donor, to raise that amount – not once, but twice!

We made CSUSM history thanks to you. Never before have so many people come forward in one day to demonstrate their support for our university. Together, we raised $171,618!

Helping us reach that milestone were three additional program-specific matches: tripling donations for the Food Insecurity project, thanks to The David T. & Dorris E. Staples Foundation; for ACE Scholars Services, thanks to Jim Mickelson; and, for the University Library, thanks to Tom and Carolyn McGurn.

Your support is a perfect example of the intent of our Forward Together campaign, which is a united effort encompassing our commitment to preparing tomorrow’s leaders, building great communities and solving critical issues. You showed once again that we can accomplish great things when people come together.

We continue to be honored by the outpouring of support from our alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends. Thank you for all that you do to impact our University and touch the lives of our students.

On behalf of our entire campus community, thank you again for your support and love of CSUSM!
