We surpassed our $20,000 goal!

On behalf of the entire university, I want to express my deepest gratitude for your incredible generosity during our Day of Giving campaign. Thanks to your support, we were able to surpass our fundraising goal and raise more than we ever thought possible in only 24 hours! 

Although our Day of Giving officially ended today at noon, the gifts are still rolling in so we will keep our giving page open until Sunday evening.

Your support means the world to us and we can't thank you enough for making CSUMB's first Day of Giving a success!
