Three Days Left to Give!

January 28, 2020

Thank you all for the generous gifts thus far. Though we have not met our goal, the contributions will make a positive impact on the CSUN Orange Grove by providing funding to replace dying trees, provide nutrient-rich compost, and irrigation.


We would like to ask you to please share this campaign with your family and friends and on social media. The Orange Grove provides so much value to the CSUN campus and surrounding community by providing oranges to feed hungry people, a beautiful place to relax, habitat for many animal and insect species, and research opportunities for faculty and students. As there are only a few days left in the funding campaign, your help to share this campaign with others will help us get closer to our goal.


Links to social media and the website on the campaign page. It's also posted on Instagram and Faceback @sustainCSUN if you can share the posts with your networks. We greatly appreciate your support!


With Gratitude,

CSUN Institute for Sustainability
