Thiebaud collection among gifts announced at Green and Gold Gala

View slide show

The announcement of $2.5 million in gifts—including a significant collection of drawings by the evening’s honoree and Sacramento State alumnus Wayne Thiebaud—was among the highlights of Sacramento State’s third annual Green and Gold Gala on Friday, Oct. 5.

The collection of 150 Thiebaud works on paper represents the breadth of Thiebaud’s career, from his early work as a cartoonist to the present day. The collection—valued at more than $1 million—is the gift of anonymous donors. It will be housed in the University Library’s Special Collections and University Archives.

Other gifts announced at the Gala included:

A $500,000 gift to honor John and Myrna Stremple. Of that, more than $375,000 will go toward scholarships for math and science honor students and $125,000 will support Sacramento State football.

A bequest of approximately $400,000 for scholarships in education, from the estate of Earline Ames, a former Sacramento State administrator.

A $400,000 bequest to the College of Education, from the estate of alumna Nancy Owens.

A $100,000 gift for scholarships for students in the honors program and to support other University programs, from the Wells Fargo Foundation.

A $156,000 gift to support faculty development and scholarships for re-entry students, from the estate of Charlotte Walker, wife of former Sacramento State academic vice president Stephen Walker.

Media assistance is available by contacting the Sacramento State public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
