Giving Priorities


Fundraising priorities at SDSU’s College of Education focus on programs that offer growth opportunities for the university, enable donors to impact student learning in unique ways, and respond to trends influencing higher education.

All gifts can be made securely online. Give a one-time amount, set up a re-occurring donation, or make this a tribute gift in honor or memory of a significant someone.
