Empower Student Wellbeing and Success

On November 28, 2023, Pioneer supporters will come together to support Pioneers for H.O.P.E (Helping Our Pioneers Excel), our basic needs service, at Cal State East Bay.

At the heart of our #CSUEBGivingTuesday campaign is the commitment to student success and wellbeing. We provide a vital safety net, offering emergency housing, food assistance, and clothing to ensure that our students have the essential support required to thrive academically and personally. Your generous contributions today will directly impact the lives of our students, ensuring they have the stability and resources they need to focus on their education and future success. Join us in making a difference and empowering the next generation of leaders by supporting Pioneers for H.O.P.E.

No student should face uncertainty about their next meal.

Cal State East Bay is committed to creating an inclusive and supportive community for all our students, ensuring that every member can pursue their education without the burden of food insecurity. Your donation, whether big or small, directly supports our mission. With your generosity, we can:

  • Relocate our food pantry to a larger space, to keep up with rising demands.
  • Provide nutritious food and essential supplies to students in need.
  • Alleviate the stress and anxiety that food insecurity creates, allowing students to focus on their studies.
  • "Thank you so much for your contributions to the HOPE Pantry at Cal State East Bay. As a very busy and broke working student, this is a transformative program. The fresh food and resources provided makes a huge difference in my life. I am so grateful!!" - Patrick, Student

Our Clothing Closet is a vital resource, providing free, quality clothing to students who might be facing financial hardship. By supporting our Clothing Closet, you're not just donating clothes – you're helping to build self-esteem and opportunity. Your generosity will help students dress for success, preparing them for interviews, internships, and everyday confidence.

Life's challenges often appear unexpectedly.

Students may encounter financial setbacks from unforeseen events such as fires, temporary homelessness, sudden car expenses, injury, or family loss, disrupting their learning endeavors. Our Emergency Assistance Fund provides swift financial support to Cal State East Bay students facing sudden financial hardships due to emergencies or crises.

Your contribution will go directly toward maintaining our students’ academic pursuits. Every gift, any amount, makes a difference! Your gift can keep the door of opportunity open for a Cal State East Bay student.
