How to give to CSU
New Endowments and Planned Gifts

Endowments are donated funds that are invested to grow over time. The annual distribution from endowment income is used for scholarships, professorships, programs and other purposes specified by the donor. Endowments are critically important because they produce a permanent and reliable income flow that benefits the University and its students.

In fiscal year 2015, the number of endowments increased to 320. Thank you to these generous donors who established new endowment funds.
