Please complete the online pledge form below. A LAFS representative will contact you to collect your contribution. Every little amount donated matters.
LAFS General Fund: Your contribution to the LAFS General Fund helps sponsor different social and awareness events and programs at CSU San Marcos that impact the Latino community.
LAFS Scholarship: The LAFS Scholarship, housed through the BECA Foundation, is our association's biggest effort. Scholarships are for undergraduate and graduate freshman and continuing CSUSM students.
LAFS Auction: Gifts in kind are also accepted in support of our online AUCTION. All auction proceeds benefit the LAFS Scholarship.
Latino Graduate Reception: An event in celebration of our CSUSM Latino and Latina graduating students. The celebration is a success with more than 350 students, family, faculty, and staff attending each year. Our students work hard throughout their college years and reach a point where their academic achievement should be celebrated, recognized and embraced. Our graduates look forward to this event more than ever!
The Lowrider Experience: The goal of this grassroots collaborative event is to unite the CSUSM community, its University Police Department, and our surrounding communities in a gathering to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month. In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, we spotlight the local lowrider automotive culture, which traditionally reflects a great part of the Mexican culture. This event creates a setting where UPD interacts with its community in a non-enforcement environment, to represent all public safety entities, in a positive light. This helps strengthen community relations among LAFS, the UPD, local police departments and other public organizations. Establishing valuable relationships among various organizations can increase our quality of life, which will in turn produce a safer community for generations of future community leaders, artists and entrepreneurs, while at the same time bringing awareness and respect for the time-honored cultural tradition of lowriding. Furthermore, as an institution of higher learning, we will have the opportunity to engage the community in an educational setting.
