How can you help?
There are several ways you and your company can play a valuable role in educating the next generation of fire protection engineers.
A direct financial/cash contribution. This type of donation is most useful during the planning and implementation stages because it allows the University to use the resources where most needed. You may go directly to the Cal Poly Giving website to make a contribution to FPE.
Establishing an endowment to provide perpetual support for the fire protection engineering programs. Minimum endowment gifts of $50,000 are encouraged for this program.
For some individuals a planned gift, which includes life-income opportunities and other financial planning arrangements for both the donor and the University, is an easy way to make a big impact long into the future. Representatives from Cal Poly's University Advancement are available to discuss tax and other advantages for making a planned gift.
In-kind donations of equipment. To support the fire protection engineering programs, Cal Poly will create an FPE laboratory. Equipment and supplies are needed to adequately furnish this facility.
Thank you to the following individuals and organizations for their support of the FPE program at Cal Poly:
- California State University Commission on the Extended University
- SFPE - Society of Fire Protection Engineers
- SFPE Educational & Scientific Foundation
- The Donald E. Bently Center for Engineering Innovation
