A gift in your will or trust, a bequest, works well for people who want to support SDSU but are unable to part with their resources today. Bequests can support the colleges and areas on campus that mean the most to you, or you can make your gift unrestricted to support the University’s greatest needs.  To get started, contact Amy Walling at 619.594.0286, [email protected] or Allison Ohanian at [email protected], or simply fill out our Gift Confirmation Form.

Providing support for you to give is one or our highest priorities. We realize you might be considering creating an endowment, offering a matching gift, participating in a crowdfunding campaign, or giving through a number of other options. For questions regarding how to use any of the giving methods above please contact, Director of Gift Administration, Hillary Levison, at the Campanile Foundation, [email protected].
