Daniel and Connie Rodriguez Support CSUB Through $125,000 Gift

Thursday, September 16, 2021

Founder and President of Rodriguez & Associates, Daniel Rodriguez and his wife, Connie, have gifted California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB), $125,000 to be distributed over a five-year period.

“Giving is contagious!” –  Daniel Rodriguez

Rodriguez and his wife were inspired to donate to the university after Connie Perez-Andreesen and Joel Andreesen, a Senior Partner at Rodriguez & Associates, donated to CSUB earlier this year. The donation by Daniel and Connie Rodriguez will be shared equally between the Roadrunner Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships to student-athletes, and the Center for Social Justice, a Political Science Department that is dedicated to telling the stories of those who have experienced social injustice in the region.

“Athletics not only helps build character but also provides entertainment to our community. As for the Center of Social Justice, we think that it helps promote fairness and justice in segments of our society that are too often neglected.” – Daniel Rodriguez

At Rodriguez & Associates, Daniel Rodriguez has always emphasized to his staff the importance of giving back, both in and out of the courtroom. Supporting local organizations and charities strengthens the community that we work and live in, which benefits all members in the long run.

To learn more about the Rodriguez’s CUSB donation and how it will be used, read this article.
