About the Board
Behind every dollar of private support is a team of volunteers and professionals attending to the gifts through The University Foundation at Sacramento State. A volunteer Board of Directors, each selected for his or her professional expertise and support for Sacramento State, oversees the management of assets to ensure gifts are invested prudently and distributed in accordance with donor wishes.
Many of the members of The University Foundation at Sacramento State are alumni; others are community members dedicated to helping the region by fostering a great university. Their commitment as advisers and ambassadors, coupled with the University’s Development staff, provide the core for a strong fundraising program.
