With 2023 quickly winding down, there’s still time to offer a charitable donation to the Orfalea College of Business that you can deduct on your 2023 tax returns.  (And remember, the last day to transfer securities is Dec. 29.)

Gifts help support our mission to provide students with an experiential, transformative education that prepares them to have a positive impact. Support to the college funds technology, building renovations, faculty fellowships, scholarships, study abroad, and more.

The Orfalea College of Business Dean’s Excellence Fund is the most flexible, allowing us to move quickly to maximize exceptional opportunities.

For information about giving, please contact Kell Dye, executive director of development and external relations, at kedye@calpoly.edu or 805-459-8349.
