President's Associates and Heritage Society

CSUN is happy and proud to honor its supporters through our two giving societies. Society members benefit by having fun, meeting and connecting with others who share their commitment to CSUN at exclusive events, and knowing that they are a crucial part of the continual elevation of the university. 

President’s Associates

The President’s Associates is an organization that recognizes and supports Cal State Northridge’s philanthropic leaders. Through their generous financial contributions, volunteer service and ambassadorship, President’s Associates advance the overall excellence of the university and strengthen its impact.

President’s Associates:

  • Recognize and value alumni and friends who support the university
  • Create a community of supporters who are loud and proud of CSUN
  • Showcase Cal State Northridge’s excellence

Annual giving of $1,000 or more to any CSUN college or program qualifies you for membership to President’s Associates. Your gift could create a named scholarship, support a department, sponsor a student project or allow the dean to foster faculty research. The possibilities are limitless.

Heritage Society

The CSUN Heritage Society recognizes and honors alumni and friends of California State University, Northridge, and San Fernando Valley State College who have made a financial commitment to CSUN's future through their estate plans. While traditional cash gifts are invaluable to the university today, planned giving is a crucial investment in our university's commitment to be relevant, responsive and ready for the future.

To become a member, and receive exclusive benefits and event invitations, all you need to do is tell us that you have taken this important step. Please contact Shellie Hadvina at (818) 677-2786 or to discuss making CSUN a cherished component of your financial planning.
