To our Alumni and Friends:
Thank you for making fiscal year 2015 another stellar year for fundraising. Records were set, with generous donors like you helping the University achieve $22 million in new gifts and pledges.
The CSU Foundation, which stewards the gifts that you and others entrust to us, saw its funds under investment grow to $74.9 million, the highest total ever. The market value of the Foundation's endowments was $69.5 million, up from last year's $66.2 million value.
The growing success of the Foundation's advancement efforts reflects Cleveland State University's local and national reputation for engaged learning, faculty who excel at teaching and research, and partnerships that are driving Northeast Ohio's economy and quality of life. Belief in Cleveland State as the university that educates the leaders and workforce of tomorrow has never been stronger — as evidenced by the generous philanthropy of alumni and friends.
We invite your continued investment in the University, its students and Northeast Ohio through ENGAGE: The Campaign for Cleveland State University. This $100 million campaign, CSU's first, is an opportunity to support student success and to educate the men and women who are this region's future.
Surpassing the successes of the past two years is a challenge that we're ready to tackle. For that, we need your ongoing engagement.
