With higher education costs rising and state support dwindling, many of our students simply do not have the resources to attend college. Those who do attend Cal U graduate with increasing amounts of student loan debt.

Cal U relies on annual support from donors. Making a gift to the Annual Fund, through the Foundation for California University of Pennsylvania, allows alumni and friends of the University the opportunity to fund academic programs, endowed chairs, special research projects and other initiatives. Donors may choose to fund a specific program, department, project, or designate their gift to be used in whatever way best supports the needs of Cal U.

Cal U offers many ways to give. Make your online gift today.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts

A gift "in memory" of a beloved family member or friend attaches his/her name to the preservation and enhancement of education opportunities at Cal U. Tribute gifts recognize character and achievements while benefiting students and programs. There are several funds to choose from:

  • Endowed Scholarship Funds: Already established by the associations of Alumni, Faculty and Emeriti Faculty, these funds receive gifts of any amount.
  • Other Endowed Funds: The Foundation for California University of Pennsylvania maintains more than 150 endowed funds. Each includes gifts totaling at least $10,000. Memorial gifts may be added to an existing fund in any amount at any time.
  • Library Book Funds: The Louis L. Manderino Library regularly receives memorial gifts for its book-purchase program.
  • Campus Landmarks: The naming of buildings, facilities within them or spaces around them merits a team approach.
