CEO's Message

Andrea Taylor, CEO Thank you for your interest in the CSULB 49er Foundation and for taking the time to learn more about the foundation’s special role at The Beach.

On December 31, 2015, the university successfully completed its first major fundraising campaign, DECLARE: The Campaign for CSULB.  I am proud to tell you that we raised a total of $238 million, easily surpassing our original fundraising goal of $225 million.  The CSULB 49er Foundation — in particular, our Campaign Committee, chaired by Mort Stuhlbarg — played a key role in this history-making effort.  In fact, every donor and everygift made a difference, and I would like to my express deep appreciation to the thousands of friends, students, faculty, alumni, and staff who helped make our first major campaign a resounding success.

We are delighted by the response to DECLARE, but the truth is that the need for private philanthropy does not end with the conclusion of the campaign.  As we move forward, the CSULB 49er Foundation will strive to build on our campaign momentum to further expand and deepen our base of private support.  And, of course, board members will continue working diligently to provide prudent, skillful stewardship of our endowment and all donated resources.

I invite you to explore our website, and I hope you will consider joining our efforts to help The Beach achieve its extraordinary potential.  Thanks, once again, for your time and interest!
