Cougar Career Closet

Dear CSUSM alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends of the Cougar Career Closet,

Thank you so much for your generous donations to our Career Closet! We are temporarily unable to accept any clothing donations. However, we are gratefully accepting monetary donations to the closet, which will help CSUSM students have the professional attire they need when they return to campus.

Your gift will be used to fill any existing gaps in the closet inventory to ensure that all students have the chance to build their professional wardrobe.

To donate funds, please visit the CSUSM Giving Page and in the "Select a donation designation" field, please select “Other,” then in the "Enter your own designation and special instructions" field, enter “Cougar Career Closet.”

Are you interested in helping students during this time of need? Please visit the CSUSM Student Relief Fund for more information, or contact Sean Briner in the Office of Annual Giving at sbriner@csusm.edu.

Thank you for giving CSUSM students the essentials they need to be interview and career ready!

About the Cougar Career Closet

Founded in 2017 by the Latino Business Student Association, the Cougar Career Closet is stocked with gently used professional clothing FREE for all CSUSM students in need of proper attire for career-related events.  While the LBSA is still involved with marketing and acquiring donations, CSUSM’s Career Center now runs the daily operations. 

Your donations make a big difference! The Closet accepts clothing in clean, good condition, and recent style items to stock our closet. We hope that you will consider donating your gently used professional attire and share this information with others who may also have some items to spare. By working together we can help all of our students succeed on their career journey!

Your contributions can be tax deductible (please request a tax letter at drop off) and greatly appreciated by CSUSM
