Why Give:

Although California State University, Long Beach is a publicly supported institution, your generous contributions to the College of Education are critical to supporting our continued growth and development. Private support is increasingly important as state contributions to the overall budget of CSULB have fallen below 50%. There are several ways in which alumni and friends may contribute to the College of Education: online, mail, phone, stocks and securities, planned gifts, matching gifts and payroll deduction.

Giving Opportunities:

Scholarships & Fellowships

Creating or contributing to an educational scholarship fund is a meaningful way to give back to your community or to honor a loved one. Your support will provide our exceptional students with access to affordable, high-quality education and ensure that we graduate teachers who are not only highly qualified, but also highly effective in the classroom. Providing a scholarship in the name of an incredible educator, or supporter of education, is a rewarding way to honor that individual.

Contribute any amount to an existing scholarship fund.

Call or email our office to create a scholarship fund. Minimum named scholarships are $2,250 and endowed scholarships funds start at $25,000.

Dean’s Excellence Fund

Contributing to the Dean’s Excellence Fund allows the Dean the flexibility to promote the highest quality educational programs, research, public service and economic development activities for The College of Education. Your generous gift in support of the Dean’s Excellence Fund is especially meaningful because it expresses your confidence in fulfilling the collective mission of the College.

Contribute any amount to the Dean's Excellence Fund.
