We invite you to make a gift.

We hope SF State’s future is important to you. With your support SF State will continue its promise of offering quality public higher education to deserving students, many of them the first in their families to attend college. For the first time in our history, students are paying more than 50 percent of the cost of instruction. Great minds built this great state. They had help. Please choose to make a gift to SF State that will help today’s students prepare for a better future.

Give to SF State here.

Leave a legacy to strengthen education for the next generation—please include SF State in your will. Now more than ever, with such deep state funding cuts, SF State depends on all alumni to maintain its high quality and accessibility.

Anyone who owns a home, insurance policy or any other appreciable asset can make a planned gift. Bequests and other planned gifts are fully tax deductible. 

Please let SF State know if you include us in your will. To take advantage of our free estate planning, contact Thomas A. Mullaney Esq., director of Planned Giving, at or 415/338-7460. To visit us on the web click here.
