Give Back

Giving back moves Cal Poly Forward

Giving back equals forward motion. Our alumni know firsthand how the Cal Poly experience can propel and impact. There are many ways to give, act and help keep the Learn by Doing legacy moving forward.


Giving your time is a win-win

Volunteers are the backbone of the Cal Poly Alumni Association. It’s a win-win when alumni give their time and get involved. Cal Poly benefits when our alumni community is strengthened and expanded, and volunteers benefit from networking opportunities and from staying connected with other alumni.
