As you may know by now, California State University, Long Beach, met—and exceeded—the goal established for DECLARE: The Campaign for CSULB. By the time the campaign officially concluded on December 31, 2015, it had raised a total of $238 million, surpassing our original goal of $225 million.
We are proud of this outcome and very grateful to the many donors who helped make our first major fundraising campaign a great success. This success translates into, among other things, student scholarships and awards; endowed chairs and professorships; expanded and enhanced academic programs; new and upgraded labs, centers, and other facilities; and more support for student-athletes.
Of course, successful campaigns do more than raise money. DECLARE also deepened alumni pride and participation, increased the public’s understanding of and interest in our mission, and laid the groundwork for even higher levels of donor engagement and support in the future.
We look forward to building on this momentum in the years to come, and we encourage all members of the CSULB family to continue to DECLARE their support for The Beach!
