Faculty and Staff

As Cal Poly employees, you commit yourselves every day to making Cal Poly a better university. At the same time your financial contributions allow Cal Poly to continue its mission to be the leading Learn by Doing university.

Employees can direct their gifts to the college, campus, or program of their choice through a payment option that works best for them, including payroll deduction.

Your gifts speak volumes about your confidence in Cal Poly as a place for philanthropic investment and show your pride in our university.

Ways To Give

There are several convenient payment options – simply choose the one that is best for you. In addition to the typical ways to give through check or credit card, employees can set up a regular payroll deduction. All gifts are tax deductible.
