Designated Giving


Support for Faculty

Cal State LA’s world-class faculty is critical to the success of the University.

A gift in support of faculty can be used to attract and retain outstanding teachers and researchers, support curriculum and faculty development or establish an endowed chair.

Endowed chairs allow the University to maintain a high-level of academic excellence. Specifically, they permit Cal State LA to extend research support by providing funds for materials and equipment, and mentoring to graduate or student assistants. Your contribution to endowments can also ensure that a particular topic will always be taught and studied.

To learn more about how you can support faculty, contact the University Development team at (323) 343-3075.
