A gift to an endowment fund is a gift to SDSU’s future. Endowment funds are an ongoing source of sustained, long-term funding for student success in perpetuity that represent a stable source of income. Each gift to PSFA’s endowment continues to provide support for dedicated and hard-working San Diego State students.

The generosity of alumni, parents, community partners, and friends are essential to the University’s ability to provide extraordinary educational experiences.
