How to Give

Thank you for considering a gift to Cal Poly. Your gift will help transform the lives of current and future students by enhancing the personalized instruction and first-hand experiential projects that are central to the Learn by Doing philosophy.

There are many ways to make a gift, including by mail, online, transferring securities or in response to one of our student callers. Our dedicated supporters also contribute through personal involvement as mentors or volunteers and by providing internships and employment.

We invite you to call us, so that we may help you craft a contribution in a way that will make the biggest impact on students and the most sense for you.

To be connected to the development officer associated with your area of interest, please contact University Advancement at 805-756-1555.
