$16 for 2016

Why CI alumni give?

CI alumni give because they believe in CI's mission.
CI alumni give because they received support while attending CI and want to pay that generosity forward.
CI alumni give because they are among the many CI success stories and want to perpetuate that legacy of success.
But mostly, alumni give simply because of the fond memories of their time spent at CI.

Why CI raises funds from alumni donations?

Donations go a long way in helping make the CI experience accessible and extraordinary. While some operational costs are covered by public funding, many academic and student programs would not be possible without private donations. The CI Alumni & Friends Association (A&FA) helps bridge the gap by raising private money to support student scholarships. These scholarships provide opportunities for those who may not otherwise have had the chance to pursue higher education. Alumni & Friends, as part of the CSU Channel Islands University Foundation Board, is an independent nonprofit corporation that serves CSU Channel Islands and supports the CI mission. It is tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

What your gift does for CI.

Donations made to the $16 for 2016 program benefit the A&FA Endowed Student Scholarship Fund which helps current CI students achieve their higher education dreams.

What you can do.

Click your graduating class (under Graduation Class on the right) and give $16 or more to participate in CI’s Class Giving Challenge. If each individual contributes at least $16, we can raise more than $100,000! Increase the potential power of your gift by sharing this information with friends or creating your own fundraiser.

The Class Giving Challenge will be measured in two ways:
  • Greatest total amount per class
  • Highest number of participants per class
Each winning class will receive a plaque displayed in the Alumni & Friends office.
