“It’s a testament to the support our alumni and broader SDSU community provide the university.”

More than 1,950 donors contributed to San Diego State University’s March 9 Day of Giving, setting a new participation record for the event. The single-day fundraising blitz raised more than $301,000 across more than 70 programs throughout the university, which also set a record for the number of programs receiving donations.

The online giving event generated Individual gifts ranging from $5 to $10,000. The area receiving the largest amount of funding at more than $115,000 was Student Affairs and Campus Diversity, which includes funds for SDSU’s Economic Crisis Response Team, military and veterans programs, the cultural/identity centers, Aztec Parents Fund and Guardian Scholars.

Gifts benefit students, faculty, research and important programs across all SDSU campuses. Despite the economic hardship created during a full year of the COVID-19 pandemic, donors came very close to matching the record amount raised during the 2019 Day of Giving.

“Considering the past year, what our donors accomplished is nothing short of remarkable,” said SDSU University Relations and Development Communications and Fundraising Associate Director Zackary Albrecht. “It’s a testament to the support our alumni and broader SDSU community provide the university. We are grateful to all of them.”

A celebration of the impact philanthropy makes at SDSU, Day of Giving was sponsored for the third consecutive time by PostalAnnex.
