Senior Class Gift



Make your contribution today!

Whether you’re graduating in the fall, spring, or summer, you are a part of the CSU Monterey Bay’s Class of 2021 - CONGRATULATIONS! A great way to commemorate your time here at CSUMB is to donate to the Senior Class Gift. All donations raised by the 2021 Senior Class will be used to support the basic needs of our students by helping them with housing fees, food costs, technology purchases, and many more. The goal of this year's class is to raise $2,500 and have at least 20% participation from the senior class. Remember, no donation is too small!

Why should I donate?

The history of giving a Senior Class Gift is a deep rooted tradition among all American universities. U.S. News & World Report considers giving participation rate a factor in their rankings. CSUMB currently ranks #25 in the Top Public Schools Western Regional Universities category. Since it is a new tradition at CSUMB, it is a great way to leave philanthropic footsteps for future Otters to follow!

Whether it is to honor faculty, staff, students, or your experiences, your donation is a way to commemorate your time here. By donating to the basic needs fund, you are helping students to stay in school and complete their degree, and enabling the opportunity of higher education to future CSUMB students. Remember that each of you is a part of the Class of 2021 and play an important role in participation.
