Advancement Communications and Stewardship

The Office of Advancement Communications and Stewardship plans, creates and manages comprehensive external and internal communications and strategies—and the materials and programs relevant to those strategies—in support of Sacramento State’s advancement efforts with alumni, donors, prospective donors, the campus community and friends.

The department’s goal is to formulate, articulate and implement a cohesive vision for messaging and communication that will be shared by all Advancement departments and enable the division to meet its alumni engagement, fundraising and participation goals to instill pride and encourage investment in Sacramento State.

Advancement Communications and Stewardship supports the divisions within University Advancement through a variety of programs such as donor relations, message development, design services, photography and publications, including the University’s flagship publication, Sac State Magazine.
