The event drew $454,438 from thousands of donors. A total of 1,405 donors from 40 states and four countries gave 1,621 gifts to support projects related to academic innovation, student empowerment, community engagement, and campus transformation in a 24-hour span.

“It Takes a Titan” is a five-year, $200 million initiative that invites the entire Titan family – faculty, staff, alumni, and community members – to be the difference in elevating the potential of our remarkable students.

Cal State Fullerton’s Faces of Philanthropy site features some of the donors who have supported the campaign so far, sharing why they chose to give, and how they personalized their gifts in a way that was meaningful to them.

Darrell (BS ’85) and Vicky Jodoin recently established the Friends of the Park Engineering Scholarship to honor the opportunities afforded them by the education Darrell received in the College of Engineering & Computer Science and in recognition of the longstanding partnership between Cal State Fullerton and Disneyland Resort. The annual scholarship will award two $2,000 scholarships to deserving students in mechanical engineering and the College of Engineering & Computer Science.
