Donors leading the way…
San Francisco State University thanks the many alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends whose generous donations help the University make learning and professional development happen – and support the many ways SF State serves the surrounding community.
During the most recent fiscal year, 2016-17, members of the SF State community joined together to raise $17.2 million to support the University's people, programs and mission. These investments in the students of today and tomorrow – and in SF State’s community partnerships – are critical to ensuring excellence in our work, and an affordable high quality public higher education.
