What is the Founders Society?
The Founders Society is an annual fund recognition society to thank those who contribute $1,000 and above.
Why Join the Founders Society?
Each year, state funding decreases, while need and merit increase. With your gift, Cleveland State can offer new student scholarships, faculty and staff development, academic programs, multidisciplinary centers, technology, library resources, facility upgrades, and so much more.
What Can I Expect when I Join the Founders Society?
With your gift to the Founders Society, you can help CSU offer the highest quality education, as well as new and improved research efforts to better prepared students - students who have worked hard to get into CSU, and who will work hard to stay in Northeastern Ohio. You can help us retain these students, increase their chances of graduating, and you can help us provide the support network that is necessary to college graduates in today's changing world.
You can expect a commitment from us to use your gift to provide for students who deserve an education but may not be able to afford it. You can expect it to change the future. And you can expect it to change lives.
Founders Society members are recognized for their leadership support on the University's Honor Roll of Donors, appearing in Perspective magazine and online. They will also receive an invitation to an annual recognition event with President Berkman. All gifts are tax deductible as permitted by law.
Join the Founders Society
President Berkman's vision for Cleveland State includes engaging its students, its faculty and staff, its alumni, and its friends to provide a world-class education. The students who receive their education at Cleveland State can change our region, our nation, and our world. Support them today, and help us offer the Access to Excellence for which CSU is known.
