Annual Giving

The SJSU Fund supports students as they discover and work hard toward who they want to be—for themselves, for their families and for their community. Gifts provide ongoing support for innovative student programs, services and enrichment opportunities, help provide essential resources for colleges, schools and departments, and support SJSU’s greatest needs.

The following awards are made possible by the generosity of thousands of San José State University alumni and friends who contribute to the university each year through the SJSU Fund program.

Your Annual Gifts Impact Students’ Lives
