About Us

Tower Foundation

The Tower Foundation was established to encourage connections between alumni, donors and the community. The increasingly challenging funding environment requires San Jose State to augment public funding with private donations.

Tower is dedicated to growing the university's endowment through donations, bequests and prudent investment management.
