Giving to Central State University just got easier! Now you can empower students from diverse backgrounds with a quality education by enrolling your Kroger rewards card in the Kroger Community Rewards Program. 

Through the program, you can advance positive change at Central State University and in the communities where CSU alumni live, work, and play. Your everyday shopping can transform the lives of current and prospective Marauders as they make their way through the college experience at Ohio’s only public Historically Black College or University (HBCU) and 1890 Land-Grant Institution.  

Thanks to donors like you, students like Honors College student Ibrahima Jarjou can follow their dreams and ignite their passions at Central State.
