CSU rallies to support its own on Giving Tuesday

Giving_Tuesday_300The CSU community once again has come through to support its own.

Nearly 400 supporters donated gifts totaling $30,824 on Giving Tuesday, providing funding for Rams Against Hunger and other programs

“Fantastic things happen when the Ram community comes together to focus their efforts on a cause. Giving Tuesday is one of those times,” said Brett Anderson, CSU’s vice president for university advancement. “We are so very grateful to the almost 400 donors who showed such tremendous support for our students in need. A sincere ‘thank you’ for your impactful gift.”

Triple the support from 2014

The numbers from the fourth-annual Giving Tuesday, held Dec. 1, smashed totals from last year last year when 125 supporters donated slightly more than $10,000. Most of this year’s donors selected Rams Against Hunger for their gift, but several other funds – scholarships, veterans’ programs, academic programs, colleges, etc. – received support.

Rams Against Hunger was created to serve students experiencing food insecurity, defined as being without reliable access to sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. Nearly 10 percent of CSU’s students experience food insecurity.
