The Tower Society was established in 1997, SDSU's centennial year, to recognize and honor donors whose lifetime giving supports our educational mission at the highest levels.  Tower Society recognizes the tremendous loyalty and extraordinary support of people who have made lifetime contributions of $50,000* or more to SDSU. 

The society is named for the landmark tower completed in 1931 at the northwest corner of the original campus quad and officially renamed Hardy Tower in 1976 to honor the university’s second president, Edward L. Hardy.  This tower is an iconic symbol of San Diego State.

Like Hardy Tower, members of the Tower Society are an integral part of the university and their generosity is a catalyst to building excellence. We are grateful for the steadfast support of our Tower Society members.  The greatest benefit of Tower Society membership is the pride of knowing that your dedication makes a difference in the lives of our students and our campus community.
