Student-Athlete & Donor Dinner
Beach Athletic Club donors are generous and caring people who unselfishly give to support the educational endeavors of student-athletes. The Student-Athlete & Donor Dinner provides the donor with an opportunity to be paired with a student-athlete and build a personal relationship. This opportunity allows for meaningful report to be built for the duration of the student-athletes time at Long Beach State. It is a privilege for both the donor and student-athlete and provides opportunity for mentorship and an enhanced positive experience for both parties.
"Desiree and I are proud that we have been associated with the program since its inception. Through the years we have established long-lasting relationships with our designated athletes. Our "Family of 49ers", which extends over three continents, continues to link us with the athletes and the university we all attended. Go Beach!"

"Supporting Long Beach State Athletics goes to the core of my personal beliefs----giving back to the Long Beach community -- helping support and build young men and women to be the best they can be through academic excellence along with athletic performance. Anyone can just go to school--its takes a special kind of person to play a sport and still be an academic scholar. Paying it forward to assure our next leaders do the same. Go BEACH!"
Beach student-athletes are able to pursue all academic and athletic success thanks to the generous support of you - the donor. By impacting the lives of those who proudly wear the Beach uniform, we all take pride in knowing your investment will continue the future success of Long Beach State.

Blair Field Project
The arms race refers to the escalating investments being made in college athletic facilities throughout the country. Some universities invest millions in an effort to secure bragging rights. While we are donor centric and will respond appropriately to interest and capacity for any of our facilities, we have three major facility campaigns at present.
