Ways to Give

Give Online


Making a gift online is easy and a great way to support the Library. Go to California State University's Secure Online Donation Form. You can choose to make a one time gift to the Library, or to set up recurring donations.

Your Gift Makes a Difference

The Library's mission is to support the academic programs of the University. In order to accomplish this mission, we must have a dynamic collection that will serve the needs of the faculty and the students. As new courses are added, or existing ones shift focus, the Library must be able to respond by purchasing new materials in support of these changes.

Your gift will allow us to continue to meet the needs of our students and faculty by giving us additional flexibility in purchasing the most needed of books, electronic resources, journals, and other Library materials.

How to Give

Donate a Book a Year

A donation of $60.00 will buy one book. A bookplate will be placed in the front of the book with your name or the name of someone you would like to remember or honor.

Adopt a Journal

We need many donations for journals, from all disciplines. A minimum of 2 years subscription is required. Donor names will be placed with the journal.

Adopt a Database

There are many new databases which are really needed by our students. If you support a database, your name will appear each time a student accesses that database. If a company donates a database, the company name will appear when used by students. The cost of databases vary.

Endow a Subject Collection

Any of our subject collections are available for naming with a gift of $25,000 in an endowment. This gift may be paid over a 5 year period. The collection will then carry your name, such as the “Smith Shakespeare Collection” or the “Jones Accounting Collection,” and a plaque will be placed in the stacks with your name. Interest from your endowment will purchase new books in your collection, and each of the books will have a specially designed bookplate with your name.
