CSUB to Partner with Give Big Kern 2017

California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) will once again partner with Give Big Kern, the annual philanthropic county-wide day of giving initiative, on Tuesday, May 2, 2017.

Set to run for 24 hours, Give Big Kern celebrates the giving sprit and unity of Kern County joining to support local nonprofits, both big and small. This year, community members, including CSUB students, alumni, faculty, and staff can support the following campus programs:

  • CSUB Edible Garden, addressing food insecurity by growing healthy food for CSUB students, staff, and faculty.
  • Roadrunner Scholarship Fund, providing financial support to all CSUB teams. The Roadrunner Scholarship Fund is the backbone of Roadrunner Athletics.

Taking part in Give Big Kern’s day of giving can be done so by donating, pledging volunteer hours, and sharing with friends and family.
