Giving Back

Donate Directly to Staff Council

This year we need your help to continue to provide meaningful and engaging Staff events on campus! Let's do this together!

Donate to Staff Council today!

1. Gnomes and Nature

Gnomes & Nature Banner

For a minimum donation of $5.00, Staff Council delivered Gnomes or Nature to someone's office for a special occasion, to acknowledge the work they do, or just for fun! They received a note explaining the service, who sent this to them, and instructions on how to send gnomes or nature to someone else.

The gnomes or nature scene stayed in the designated office for approximately one week before traveling on to the next office (M-F). This fundraising initiative is currently under review. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Amelia Wright, Staff Council Treasurer, by emailing

Thank you for supporting Staff Council!

Staff Council Fall 2020 Homecoming Repurpose Contest 

Cal Poly Humboldt has a long-standing commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. This year for the Staff Council's Homecoming Contest, we invited all staff members to create something out of repurposed items and to submit a picture by emailing, or share a picture to their social media accounts using the hashtag: #HSUStaffCouncil.

Consider donating to our campus Go Green Fund! Give now and have twice the impact! An Humboldt Advancement Foundation board member has pledged to match any gift of $500 or more, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000 total!
