CSUSM Giving Day is your day to support what you love about the University for 24 hours on November 27, 2018 from 12:00a.m. to 11:59p.m. Held on global Giving Tuesday, CSUSM Giving Day is for everyone who loves CSUSM to join together in support of the University and maximize their impact through a matching gift.
Every gift impacts our students as they strive toward their goal of a CSUSM degree. The more support that we receive from alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends, the more students we can impact and lives we can change. Your gift is in investment in a student's future.
Thanks to a generous matching gift from our Foundation Board chair, Dr. Jack Raymond, each gift made on CSUSM Giving Day will be matched up to $1,000 per gift, as long as funds last. These matching dollars will follow each gift to their designated fund. So if a $250 gift is made to ACE Scholars for example, a $250 match will also go to ACE Scholars.
This will depend on the fund you support. Use the Find Your Cause section to learn more about some of the funds and departments you can support. All gifts that do not have a specific fund designation, will be deposited into the Annual Fund, which goes directly where the money is needed most at the University.
Donors can also use the search function on the form to find their cause, or can use the donation notes box to write their own designation.
Yes. If you can't find the fund you are looking to support on the CSUSM Giving Day donation form, please write in your designation in the box provided, as seen below.
After you give, use the social media share buttons on the confirmation page to share that you made a gift! In addition, you can spread the word using videos, photos, gifs and charts that will be available to share on your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
Yes! To show your support for more than one area, visit Find Your Cause and complete the giving form for each fund you would like to give to.
Our goal is to raise more than last year! The more we raise, the more students will benefit from your generosity. We would also love to see at least 200 first-time donors so we can foster a growing community of people who love Cal State San Marcos.
There is no minimum. Gifts of all sizes are welcome. Every gift matters!
