CLSA Education Foundation/CSU Fresno Endowment Fund


The Issue: California has been steadily reducing funding for educational institutions. The CSU Fresno Geomatics program, one of only two ABET surveying engineering accredited degrees in California, is considered to be small and is more susceptible to cutbacks or elimination. Both professors that hold a professional land surveying license, are now retired.

The Solution: The CLSA Education Foundation has worked with CSU Fresno to create an endowment that will fund a full-time professor licensed to practice land surveying in California. This will help to ensure that the CSU Fresno Geomatics program continues. Lyles Foundation will match all donations, dollar-for-dollar, up to $1 million

Use the "Donate" button above left to donate via PayPal, or, contact the CLSA Central Office at (707) 578-6016 to pay by credit card, or, mail your check payable to CLSA EF to 526 South E Street - Santa Rosa, CA 95404
