Strategic and mutually beneficial partnerships

Family, community and corporate foundation support has an impressive history of accomplishments at Sacramento State. Their funds have often served as a catalyst for new programs and student opportunities, and their votes of confidence have often been crucial to encouraging further support from others.

  • Establish an endowment that provides Sacramento State with an annual income stream to be spent for the fund’s designated purpose, while the principal of the fund remains intact. A portion of the fund’s income is reinvested to preserve the value of the fund over time.
  • Create or support a scholarship to ensure that Sacramento State remains affordable and accessible for all students to realize their dreams of a college education. It also provides opportunities to recognize and motivate our best and brightest students.
  • Provide funding for emerging needs through programs such as the President’s Circle, Deans’ Leadership Circle or College of Business Administration’s Corporate Associates.
  • Identify a program or area that closely aligns with your personal or corporate values by contacting a faculty or staff member.
