Why Give?

Giving back enriches us all.

Rhonda Rhodes works with students in her class at the College of Business Administration.No matter what your passion is, Cal Poly Pomona can be an effective instrument for change. At our university, gifts of all sizes can make a positive difference in the lives of students and the greater community.

Most people don’t realize that while Cal Poly Pomona is a state university, it is not fully state supported, but rather state assisted. Every dollar of support from each donor contributes to Cal Poly Pomona’s mission of providing lifelong learning to students.

Our team of development officers have helped donors expand learning experiences, propel faculty research, enrich community programs, build state-of-the-art facilities, and so much more.

Gifts enhance the Cal Poly Pomona experience and at the same time can help our donors effect meaningful change in issues important to them. They can also provide generous tax breaks and savings opportunities through planned giving.

“I believe in Cal Poly Pomona. It gave me a very good education. When I was a student, people contributed to Cal Poly Pomona to make it a better place. I knew when I was able to, that’s what I was going to do, too.”
