Giving Priorities

The College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts (PSFA) is focused on enhancing student success and supporting the important work of our faculty. Gifts of any amount are important for changing the lives of students and the communities they will work in. Our donors make an investment in the future through their support. Our students grow from perspectives they gain through their SDSU experiences and bring their hopes and aspirations into the global community. Every dollar of support makes it possible for PSFA to promote and encourage our students whether through internship stipends, scholarships that support international experiences, or in the recruitment of the best and brightest to attend SDSU. Your support of the faculty enables them to advance their research and creative work, thus benefiting both students and the broader professions.

Please join us in making a difference for students–by supporting the following priorities that connect college, community and career.

Performing Arts District Programming General Fund

This fund will provide support for performances, students, faculty, and the greatest needs of the SDSU performing arts program. For example, venue rentals and other related costs for off-site performances, financial resources to design and build performance sets, costumes, and other performing arts related activities.
