CSU Foundation


The Central State University Foundation is the fund-raising arm of the university. We build relationships with alumni and friends, corporations, and foundations and seek their support of CSU throughout the country.

The Central State University Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation, annually manages more than two million dollars in gifts including endowed gifts. The foundation is governed by a 15-member board comprised of alumni, business and philanthropic community and university administration. Gifts to the University and Foundation take many forms including cash, securities, real estate and planned gifts such as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts and bequests.

Private contributions to CSU fund scholarships for deserving students, attract and retain top faculty, build world-class facilities, and enable cutting-edge research and educational programs to flourish. The growth of the CSU Foundation will mean a better future for Central State University.
