Shannon Honour

Shannon Honour, CSUSM Staff MemberShannon's monthly payroll deduction gift supports CSM Engineering.

CSUSM Staff Member and Employee Donor

What motivates you to be a CSUSM donor?
I love where I work and feel proud to see CSUSM grow!

Why did you choose to give via monthly payroll deduction?
Giving via payroll deduction allows me to not have to go out of my way to make a donation.  Even small monthly deductions add up over time.

Did you choose to support CSM Engineering for any specific reason?
I chose to support CSM Engineering because I think this program will be a catalyst to future STEM offerings at CSUSM.  I believe being able to offer both liberal arts degrees and a wider variety of STEM degrees will expand our footprint in the community.

What would you say to a colleague who is not currently a donor?
I would say that if you have considered donating or would like to contribute to campus in a new way, giving via payroll deduction is a painless and convenient way to make a difference!

Stephen's monthly payroll deduction gift supports the Student Philanthropy Fund Endowed Scholarship.

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.

 
 

Patricia Diaz

Dr. Stephen Tsui, CSUSM Faculty Member

Patty's monthly payroll deduction gift supports six different areas at CSUSM.

CSUSM Staff Member and Employee Donor

What motivates you to be a CSUSM donor?
I learned great lessons about tithing in my teenage years, and giving away a percentage of your goods is not difficult to do when you focus on how much you get to keep. I’m committed to sharing my goods with my community and organizations I believe in.  I believe in CSUSM! 

Why did you choose to give via monthly payroll deduction?
Payroll deduction is a great option to secure a donation is made. It’s easy and I don’t have to think about.

Why did you choose to support multiple areas of campus rather than just one or two?
I believe in spreading the wealth. I will donate to organizations I feel students will most benefit from my donation.

What would you say to a colleague who is not currently a donor?
I would say start with an amount you are most comfortable donating and lock it in by filling out the monthly payroll deduction.  Donation large or small, every cent counts! Small acts of kindness can make a difference in the world.
