Since 1940, Cal Poly Corporation (CPC, Corporation), previously Cal Poly Foundation, has provided responsible, diverse, and high-quality services to Cal Poly. The CPC is a separate, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, organized chiefly to support the educational mission of the university. The CPC is self-supporting and does not receive funding from any state sources for its operations. We currently employ over 1,500 students, faculty, and staff, making the CPC one of the largest employers in San Luis Obispo County.
The CPC was divided into two separate operations in 2006. Cal Poly Foundation became Cal Poly Corporation (described in preceding paragraph).The Cal Poly Foundation now runs as a separate nonprofit, led by Cal Poly alumni and friends. The Foundation generates private funding to advance the polytechnic "Learn- by- Doing " educational model of Cal Poly.
