For more than a century,
SF State has been powering ambition and talent with opportunity and access, creating bold-thinking graduates who venture into the world ready to make a better life, to imagine new possibilities and to build a brighter future for themselves, their families and their communities.

Today, we face challenges like no other time in our history: reduced state funding coupled with rising tuition and a soaring cost of living in the Bay Area. We must adapt and thrive in this environment while remaining true to our historic commitment to social justice. Our vision is to be a leading source of innovation and culturally and ethnically diverse talent on the Pacific Rim.

Our goal is to raise
$150 million
by December 31, 2020

To date we have raised
$135.3 million
