We’re thinking about the future. Planned gifts, also called bequests, have the power to change lives and transform San Diego State University.
Donors who make planned gifts to SDSU as part of their long-term estate plans strengthen the university for future generations of students and faculty.
The vision and generosity of these donors ensures continuing excellence in our efforts to support student success, research and creative endeavors.
Donor generosity has enabled San Diego State to build its endowment—defined as gifts of cash and securities invested to support the university’s growth. More than 100 newly endowed faculty positions, academic programs, student scholarships and graduate fellowships have been established in the last five years.
The importance of a healthy endowment cannot be overstated. America’s best universities have large endowments, allowing them to move to increasingly higher levels of excellence in academic programming and research.
With your help, SDSU will continue to increase endowed programs, scholarships and research positions that guarantee the highest quality education for future Aztecs.
