Volunteer Opportunities:

Food Drive - The Student Philanthropy Council is supporting the Cal Poly Student Food Pantry through a food drive.  Pick up something from the Campus Store or another store and drop it by the Cal Poly Food Pantry (located downstairs in the Health Center).

Senior Gift Campaign

Help us get the word out!  Each year the graduating class donates a special gift to help pave the way for fellow students and create a legacy for future Cal Poly students.  Learn more here. Share the word with your friends and family.

National Philanthropy Day

Philanthropy is “the love of humankind,” and National Philanthropy Day® (NPD)—November 15—is the day that thousands of people around the world come together to both (1) put that word into action and (2) recognize the change that word has brought to our communities. 

Help us recognize faculty, staff and students who have made Cal Poly special for you.  Send them an email, a thank you card or a shout out on your social media with #NPDLove

Poly Gives

On March 9, 2017, Cal Poly kicked off a 30-hour giving campaign that kicked off at 6pm on March 8 (Cal Poly Founder's Day) and ran up to March 9 at 11:59 p.m., Poly Gives was part of a greater movement on campus to cultivate a spirit of philanthropy among current students, graduates and the Cal Poly community.  We welcomed alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff and students to participate in the university's inaugural, campuswide Day of Giving, Poly Gives.

While alumni, parents and friends were encouraged to make a gift to "the Cal Poly they love," students were encouraged to show their Cal Poly spirit by writing personal thank you notes to donors and participating in social media contests throughout the day. Review last year's Poly Gives here.  We look forward to your help in March 2018!
