POLY GIVES // Cal Poly's Day of Giving
Thank You to our generous supporters and incredible students!

We are so appreciative of our alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends who participated in Poly Gives, and we send our gratitude to those who've continued to share the Poly Gives message on social media. We're ecstatic to announce that a few last-minute gifts actually pushed us past $150,000 after our Thank You video was produced!


Your support really does mean the world.


We can't wait for Poly Gives 2019!


Missed Poly Gives, but still want to give back to the Cal Poly you love?





Make a Gift to the Cal Poly YOU Love!


March 8 is Poly Gives, Cal Poly's Day of Giving - the day when our amazing alumni, parents and friends give back to the Cal Poly they love, and our incredible students show their appreciation for the thousands of generous donors, faculty and staff who help make Learn by Doing possible.



Poly Gives is also the culmination of "Why Give?" Week. The week leading up to Poly Gives, an inspired group of student leaders engaged their peers in recognizing and thanking the countless individuals who have made a tangible difference in their experience as students. Taking the form of hand-written thank you notes, thank you photos and personal messages sent from students to donors, faculty and staff, our students took great pride in acknowledging those who have made, and continue to make, a lasting impact in their lives.
