About my Fundraiser
Dearest Friends and Family,
As many of you may already know, I am a graduate of CSU Channel Islands.  What you may not already know is that I am a first generation college graduate whose full tuition was generously provided for by the Givers of our community.  This community support has opened doors and opportunities which have allowed me to become the successful person I am today who can pay it forward. 

On behalf of the University, I am asking you to help me this year by supporting Student Scholarships in the form of a tax deductible donation.  Tax receipts will be issued for all donations.  A donation in any amount would be greatly appreciated. 
For those of you who are not familiar with the University, CSU Channel Islands is a student-centered, four-year, public university known for its interdisciplinary, multicultural, and international perspectives and its emphasis on experiential and service learning.

CI students are well worth the investment.  They are the caliber of student-leaders who make things happen.  Also, statistically, most CI graduates remain in Ventura County, which builds our community. 

If you require additional information about the Univeristy, please contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. You may also visit online or contact them directly at
Thank you for your time and consideration.
These students are looking forward to whatever support you can provide.
