President's Leadership Fund header


To maintain our tradition of excellence, SDSU must depend on private support. The President’s Leadership Fund has demonstrated a track record of ensuring that our president has the resources to support educational and professional advancement opportunities for a variety of programs and people. These include providing academic opportunities for meritorious students and faculty, supporting groundbreaking yet under-funded programs, providing exceptional students with learning experiences that enrich their life and recruiting noteworthy faculty to meet our university’s expanding needs.
Your partnership in these efforts is essential. The president must rely on unrestricted contributions to provide the seed money necessary for educational innovation: to launch new ventures, to recruit and retain distinguished professors and students, to increase on-campus and off-campus learning opportunities and to deepen SDSU’s commitment to serve the San Diego community. Please join our visionary group of alumni and friends to help SDSU reach new heights of academic excellence.
The President’s Leadership Fund supports campus initiatives that will:

  • Encourage student success and academic excellence
  • Attract the best and brightest students to our university
  • Conduct ground-breaking research
  • Create academic programs of distinction
  • Support our community

As a partner in the President’s Leadership Fund you will be recognized in our donor honor roll, receive VIP invitations to special PLF and campus wide events, and be included in regular updates from the president.
