The Campaign for Sacramento State

About Campaign

The Campaign

Every dollar invested in Sac State delivers. Unprecedented opportunity calls to us. On the Rise is a campaign that will accelerate Sac State’s transformational impact on individual lives, diverse communities, Sacramento, California, and the world. And we’re building momentum. The campaign invites donors to invest in specific initiatives designed to help us make the most of opportunities related to Sacramento’s tremendous growth and dynamic transformations. We will double the number of scholarships we offer. We will keep more students on a path to graduation. We will create new programs and opportunities for students and invest in strong faculty. We will be graduating more and more students, transforming their lives and transforming the region. Continuing to deliver on our promise to students and to California’s communities means vigilantly seeking out and seizing opportunities to make a Sac State education even more relevant, accessible, inclusive, and excellent.

Dale and Katy Carlsen give Sacramento State innovation a $6 million boost
