In 2016-2017, the CSU received over $200 million in support – 98 percent of which
was donor designated – to fund current operations and programs, including:
Unrestricted support of $7.3 million represents two percent of all gifts received
and is available for high priority needs.
For long-term capital projects, campuses received $29 million for major facility
construction and renovation. This is a 24 percent increase over the prior year.
Endowments grew by $88 million in new contributions which will provide support
in perpetuity. About half of endowment gifts are designated to scholarships and
half are designated to academic programs.
