The Faculty & Staff Campaign is an annual fundraising effort that provides full-time and part-time faculty and staff the opportunity to directly impact the CSU community through charitable donations. Employees can choose to directly support their passions: students, academic research, college priorities, athletics, and so much more.
The campaign runs from February 1st to February 13th.
Gifts made to any CSU fund during the fiscal year count toward participation for the current year’s campaign. Pledges and gifts through payroll deduction are counted in the year in which they are made.
While a state-assisted university, CSU receives just a small portion of its funds from the state. We rely on the support of individual donations to help offset the cost of tuition, provide scholarships and research support to our faculty and students and more.
As a staff or faculty member, you are a valued part of the CSU community, and when the University benefits, the community benefits. Many of our faculty and staff members are also alumni, parents of CSU students, members of the local community, or students themselves, all of whom stand to benefit alongside CSU.
Your gift will directly benefit students, faculty and programs. Philanthropy from our campus community also demonstrates an internal commitment that can send a powerful message to our external supporters

Gifts of any amount are vital and when combined do great things at CSU. Our goal is to have 100% faculty and staff participation and we encourage gifts at any level.
