Cal Poly Parent Philanthropy

Welcome Cal Poly Parents!

We know that you and your student have chosen to join the Cal Poly community for the endless potential it offers. The diversity of ideas and wealth of Learn by Doing opportunities in every area of campus life bring out the best in our students.

We have found that the partnership between private and public support is what allows us to do our very best work and provide services and opportunities to our community. As parents, you are an integral part of the Cal Poly community and we encourage you to become involved. Your support and efforts enhance the student experience.


We've enjoyed meeting and welcoming many of our incoming families this summer at our parent and supporter hosted regional Summer Send Offs.

Thank you to the more than 100 parents and supporters who welcomed incoming families at regional Summer Send Offs this summer! With over 45 event locations throughout California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Texas, Minnesota and Colorado – and over 1,000 registered guests – the first-ever nationwide Summer Send Offs were a success!
Thank you to all of our event hosts nationwide who volunteered their time to provide a chance for Cal Poly parents and students in their area to make connections and foster new friendships. Cal Poly is grateful to have passionate parents and supporters who are committed to strengthening the Mustang family!
