Cal Poly’s Annual Giving program connects donors with exciting opportunities to financially support Learn by Doing across campus and make a tangible difference in the lives of our students.
Annual gifts to Cal Poly are the lifeblood of Learn by Doing in action. Raising $3 million annually from generous gifts between $5 and $25,000, Annual Giving connects alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students and friend donors with exciting opportunities to financially support Cal Poly. Knowing that any gift amount makes a difference directed to one or more of 100+ fund areas across campus, our loyal donors consistently demonstrate their pride and belief in Learn by Doing, giving year after year to the Cal Poly they love. Whether directing their gifts to the unique student experience, academic excellence through a particular college or department, or initiatives and programs that help drive innovation; our donors are critical to providing an extraordinary, hands-on education for every student.
