The faculty and staff giving campaign for Cal Maritime

Choosing to attend Cal Maritime as a student is a tremendous commitment. A commitment that promises great rewards. And the commitment our faculty and staff demonstrate to Cal Maritime and our students is equally impressive. 

The Rising Tide campaign gives faculty and staff an opportunity to show support beyond the classroom or office. And because a rising tide lifts all boats, a decision to support our students’ current and future successes has a ripple effect that will impact the lives of individuals, our Academy, and industry for decades to come. 

All faculty and staff are eligible to participate. Your contribution may be designated to any department or program on campus. Tax-deductible gifts may be made by check, credit card, securities or through payroll deduction (minimum $10 per month). 

Given the uncertainty of state funding, we need your support more than ever.
