Members of The President's Leadship Fund invest in SDSU faculty, staff, and students to inspire innovation, excellence, and entrepreneurship. 

The people of SDSU deserve encouragement and recognition for their important work. They help us retain the steller teacher-scholars and dedicated staff members who enrich our students' experiences, attract the best and brightest students, contribute ground-breaking, application-oriented research, create academic programs of distinction and are deeply and meaningfully engaged in the community.
