Every Brick Tells A Story

February 6, 2014

This is your chance to make a unique contribution to Cal State Northridge. By giving a gift, you can leave a lasting mark in CSUN history with your inscription imprinted on a personalized brick.  When visiting the campus you will be able to point with pride to the place where your personalized brick appears as an expression of your loyalty and rekindle memories of your college experiences. This is the perfect way to inspire campus pride and tradition for decades to come

Each 4" x 8"  brick features a personalized inscription from the donor. Bricks will be installed in phases around the Matador Plaza area. This project seeks to continue the legacy began in 2011 with the installation on campus of a spectacular bronze statue of our mascot, The Matador. Bricks may be purchased individually or in groups in tribute to students, alumni, families, employees, campus organizations, athletic teams or Matador fans. Only one brick size and inscription package is available.

Net proceeds from the project will support programs and services to engage Matador alumni with current students throughout their time on campus.

ORDERING INFORMATION:
A contribution of $150 per brick entitles you to recognition on a 4" x 8"  brick paver. Contributions are 100% tax-deductible and qualify for most matching-gift programs.
