Giving to the George L. Graziadio Center for Italian Studies is the best way that you can support our students and our projects to bring to the CSULB campus and our entire community the best education in Italian Studies.  Below are the current priorities of the center:

Student Success Fund 

We welcome scholarship funds for travel, study, internships, and research opportunities that enable students to perfect their skills and acquire greater knowledge in their chosen field.

Chair’s Excellence Fund 

Gifts to this critical area provide the chair of the George L. Graziadio Center for Italian Studies with flexible funding that allows the center to meet its greatest needs.  Examples can include funding special courses, visiting speakers and lecturers, and collaborative research projects across disciplines.

Community Engagement Fund 

Since its inception, the George L. Graziadio Center for Italian Studies has reached beyond the campus to develop partnerships with community groups around the world.  Gifts to the community engagement fund helps cover expenses such as faculty research, technology, and a full array of community events that bring the center and the wider community together in innovative ways.

Please contact us if you are interested in discussing the many ways that you might assist the Center in fulfilling its mission to teach, learn, and expand the Italian cultural presence in Southern California.
