A total of $28,360 was raised to support the needs of our students who have been affected by the wildfires. Thank you!

Support Cal Poly Students Affected by Wildfires (November 2018)

The Camp, Woolsey and Hill wildfires are having a devastating affect on people throughout California, including Cal Poly students and their families.

This campaign will provide funds for our students who have been affected and will provide resources to those who have had their home and financial situation changed drastically as a result of the fires. 

A gift of any amount to Cal Poly Cares will go directly to the students affected and will make a significant difference for them and their families as they heal through this unimaginably difficult time.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your generous and caring support of our students!
