What happens when thousands of San Diego State alumni and friends decide to support the university's pursuit of excellence?
The Campaign for SDSU achieves the $300 million mark.
SDSU's first university-wide fundraising campaign recently reached this milestone, thanks to nearly 34,000 donors whose gifts strengthen the university's ability to educate tomorrow's leaders.
Since it was launched in 2007, The Campaign for SDSU has transformed San Diego State, providing new opportunities for students through rigorous academics, experiential learning, faculty mentoring and professional internships.
The Campaign for SDSU has raised $144.5 million for SDSU's academic programs and the university library, including $9 million to support endowed chairs and professorships.
"Reaching the $300 million milestone is a testament to the university's momentum and the generosity of our numerous supporters," said SDSU President Elliot Hirshman. "Scholarship support for our students and for the extraordinary work of our faculty and staff is moving our educational, research and community service programs forward at a pivotal time in the university's history."
