In Memoriam

A tribute gift is a special way to recognize a special occasion, memorialize someone important or honor a person’s life or accomplishments. Your gift to Cal State East Bay made in honor or memory of someone ensures that their legacy extends through the bright futures of our students. 

How can I make a gift?

  • Make a gift online.
  • Mail a check made payable to the Cal State East Bay Educational Foundation at:

Cal State East Bay Educational Foundation 
C/O University Advancement
25800 Carlos Bee Blvd.
Hayward, CA 94542

Please note the name of the person you are honoring with your gift, and if there is a specific area you would like your gift to support. If you would like Cal State East Bay to notify the honoree or a family member, please provide the name and address of the person you would like notified. 

  • Contact Holly Stanco, Associate Vice President, University Development, at holly.stanco@csueastbay or 510-885-3183 or 916-718-7107 to discuss contributing to a specific fund or area. 

What will my gift support?

You may designate your gift of any size to fund that is meaningful to you or the person you are honoring (including existing current-use and endowed funds). If you do not have a specific fund in mind, we suggest the Presidential Pioneers Emergency Fund, which helps students whose living or working situations are affected by the pandemic.

You can also establish a named fund or endowment, either for current use or as a permanent endowment for a program, award or scholarship of your choice, beginning at $25,000. Endowed funds provide annual returns in perpetuity, ensuring that your tribute gift will help students for years to come.

Currently, Cal State East Bay has space naming opportunities available in the CORE Building

At this time, the university does not have an inventory of benches, trees or monuments available for naming. 

For named opportunities, including endowed funds, please contact Holly Stanco at holly.stanco@csueastbay or 510-885-3183 or 916-718-7107.
