Enriching the Lives of Others

People who enrich our lives are often those we most admire. At San Diego State University, there is deep admiration for the culture of philanthropy which is made up of generous alumni and friends who have added value to the greater good. Meaningful giving that has amplified the student experience is a vital part of that culture, enriching the lives of SDSU scholars by helping them achieve their greatest potential.

Distinguished Scholars Have Transformational Impact

Giving to SDSU allows the university to recruit the faculty who are the best and brightest scholars in their fields and will have a major influence on their students. Our scholars and motivated learners work together to solve the problems facing our region—and the world. This positive engagement between faculty and students fosters innovative research, academic achievement and career aspirations. When students earn their SDSU degrees, they often thank the professors who supported, challenged and inspired them.
