    Your gift will help us reach our goal and honor Marianne!

    Much of the outstanding success of the Center for International Trade and Transportation (CITT) can be traced to the leadership of our Emerita Executive Director, Marianne Venieris. Respected and beloved throughout the goods movement industry, Ms. Venieris created scores of partnerships and programs, gained the trust of every facet of this diverse professional community, and set CITT on the course for continued excellence.

    With her recent retirement from CITT and California State University, Long Beach, friends and colleagues sought a way to honor her service that would be in keeping with her and the Center’s grand mission. We have therefore established the Marianne Venieris Endowed Scholarship, so that even more very promising students will be able to receive the training and education that will prepare them for a successful career.

    As an endowment, the Marianne Venieris Endowed Scholarship will provide awards in perpetuity. First though, we must reach the required threshold that is prudently required by the University.  Your generous gift will help us achieve this goal. You or your organization will be acknowledged by the University, and will receive Marianne’s unending gratitude. Gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law.

    Please make your donation soon! Checks should be made out to the 49er Foundation. Adding Marianne Venieris Endowed Scholarship as a note will expedite processing. Mail your check to:
