Class of 2020 Gives

students celebrating

After years of hard work and focus, you will achieve one of your greatest goals: earning a college degree.  Our 130,000+ alumni are proof that your degree will open many doors throughout your life.  As you consider your future, we invite you to leave behind a legacy at Cal State East Bay.

The Class of 2020 Gives campaign is your opportunity to celebrate and support Cal State East Bay and recognize the positive experiences that shaped and directed your education. This campaign will support students directly through student research and scholarships.

Every gift is important. Your gift of $20.20 or more will ensure that future Cal State East Bay students will continue to receive the excellent educational opportunities that have been changing lives for the past 60 years.

Last year's Class of 2019 campaign had over 600 graduates contributing over $25,000 to establish the Class of 2019 Endowed Scholarship fund.

To kick off the Class of 2020 Gives campaign, the Cal State East Bay Alumni Association has agreed to match each graduate's gift (up to $5,000). So double your impact now!

Does Participation Matter?

Yes! Because less than 28% of our funding comes from the State of California, we rely on private support from our Pioneer family which allows us to boost our rankings, maintain and improve the programs that are most important to you and assist current and future students. 

Each graduate who contributes to the Class of 2020 Gives campaign will receive an exclusive cord to wear at commencement and be listed in the Class Gift section of the commencement program. Cords will be distributed beginning at GradFest. After GradFest, students can pick them up in the Alumni Engagement office in SA 4800.

How Do I Make a Gift?

Beginning in March, our Pioneer Fund student callers will be reaching out to over 6,000 graduating seniors to personally deliver information about giving back and commencement-related events. We look forward to getting in touch with you!
