Spartan Pride

"I love wearing the Spartan T-shirts in the "Public Sector" because it makes people aware that SJSU is a major entity of San Jose and Santa Clara Valley and it develops positive recognition for the good things that we do here." — Jim Weber, FD&O

Grounds for Giving

“Being a part of the university that fuels Silicon Valley and beyond with interns and new graduates to grow the economy and provide SJSU’s cutting-edge technology training.” — Donna Gilmour, Career Center

Spartan Strengths

"I give to support the grit, determination and ingenuity of Spartans." — Eddie Wagner, University Advancement

Spartans Supporting Spartans

Faculty and staff members impact the lives of SJSU students every day. Your dedication supports Spartans who are working hard to obtain a world-class education and pursue their goals and dreams.

What department, program, service, scholarship or enrichment opportunity for students do you hold close to your heart? The fourth annual Spartans Supporting Spartans campaign is your opportunity to make a difference there, the part of SJSU that means the most to you. Whether you give online today or conveniently by payroll deduction, remember to make your gift by April 17.
