Support the Journalism Department

The Journalism Department at Cal Poly is one of California’s most ambitious undergraduate journalism programs, maximizing the university’s longstanding advantage of Learn by Doing.

Journalism Endowment — GIVE NOW ONLINE

Your contribution to the Journalism Endowment now goes even further, thanks to a $10,000 matching gift from seven journalism alumni. Any pledge or donation during the remainder of 2023 will double its value, up to the $10,000 match.  

This fund was designed by members of the Journalism Advisory Board to meet the needs of students and faculty in the decades ahead. The fund holds its principal and pays out a small portion annually to support enrichment activities in the department. It provides a reliable source of funding that ignites a spark inside and outside the classroom, allowing hundreds of students to participate in conferences, network at career fairs and access the latest technology for their hands-on classes. 

The endowment also helps fund The Jim Hayes Symposium, a program to advance integrity in journalism and communication. 

Contributions to the endowment can be made all at once or divided into recurring payments deducted automatically from a credit card or bank account.

In addition to our Journalism Endowment, here are a number of funds in the department that provide important opportunities for our students and faculty. We also ask you to consider supporting:
