Give to Biology

Financial contributions at any level are welcome. Click on Give to CSM and drag "Designation" to one of the Biology funds. A hundred people giving what they won't miss to these funds will go far towards such things as sending students to conferences, paying for gas to go to field sites, improving lab courses, and honoring our high achievers.

The Donor Tree offers permanent recognition of the generous supporters of the Biology Department and is located in the display case in front of Chaparral Hall. A donation of $1000 adds an engraved leaf; $5000 adds an engraved acorn. Proceeds go toward the Biology Endowment/Scholarship Fund. Many alumni and parents of students have donated to the Tree, as well as those honoring the memory of faculty, staff, students, parents or friends. To add a leaf or an acorn, contact Vickie Everhart, or (818) 677-3356.

In these days of fluctuating investment portfolio values, CSUN offers you an opportunity to make a gift to support the Biology Department while also providing a stable source of income for your future. This is called "planned giving". If you're interested in something like that, of course, we want to talk with you! Contact Tania Garcia,, or (818) 677-6308.

Biology Alumni Information

The Biology Department is extremely proud of the wide variety of special opportunities that we have provided students over the years. Your department has allowed students to conduct hands-on lab and field studies, been at the forefront in the latest biotechnologies, taken clusters of students to Santa Catalina Island or the tropics, and provided research support unmatched by other universities. We want to continue and build on this tradition. To do so, we would like to assess what our former students have accomplished post-graduation. Please take a moment and help us stay in contact by filling out the form below. Even if you cannot give anything at this time, we want to stay in touch. Information you give us may go into Biosphere or our short list of a few of Biology's alumni and the careers they have gone on to.
