CLFSA, in collaboration with community organizations and agencies, provide scholarship awards to assist students attain their degrees at San Jose Staté University. Lack of adequate financial support is one of the most significant barriers to successful college completion. You have an opportunity to help us provide financial assistance to deserving students.

CLFSA and YOU make the Difference ...

You or your company can make a commitment to the pursuit of academic excellence and community involvement through your vital financial contributions to student scholarships. With the cost of education (tuition, books, room and board) well over $16,000 a year, scholarship aid is a top priority for our association.

Ways to Give a Gift...

Cash gifts are a direct means for supporting our students. CLFSA through the SJSU Foundation is a charitable organization whose gifts are tax deductible. Matching Gifts can multiply your contribution. Many companies have a matching gift program where your donations are matched thereby increasing your contribution to our fund. The entire contribution is distributed as scholarships.

Endowment contributions to our Dr. Ernesto Galarza Endowment Fund are also accepted. The interest generated from our Endowment fund is used toward scholarships. SJSU employees are able to provide monthly contributions through a payroll deduction program to the Dr. Ernesto Galarza Endowment.
