Ways to Give

Giving Day

Giving Day 2022 is on Tuesday, November 29 and will be a 24-hour campaign asking individuals to have a big heart and raise funds for the Cross-Cultural Center. This year we have a frontline match of $5000 from Kathy and Floyd Lai. Please consider donating today and watch your $10 turn into $20 and $50 turn into $100.

As the first of the student life centers established at CSUSM in 2003, the Cross-Cultural Center is a steady and constant beacon for social justice and empowerment on campus. The center has consistently supported students, faculty and staff through identity development and process, building critical consciousness, and appreciating differences. Our programs promote the development of cultural intelligence, examine various forms of activism, and train students for campus leadership, community engagement and social change. We encourage individuals to be empowered and unapologetic about who they are in the exploration and expression of their identities.

We invite all individuals (alumni, donors, community partners, faculty, staff or current students) to invest and support our efforts. All gifts, regardless of size, make a difference.
