Your Gifts Help Students Make the World a Better Place

As Silicon Valley’s public university, San Jose State impacts the public good on a global scale. For more than 160 years, the campus has been a convener of exceptional people who do extraordinary things. Join our community of change-makers by making a gift to support current and future Spartans.

SJSU is a top supplier of talent to Silicon Valley, the world’s capital of creativity and innovation. Ranked fourth in the nation on Money magazine’s list of most transformative colleges, San Jose State creates opportunities for Spartans across its nine colleges.

With a gift that makes an impact now—a gift that costs you nothing now, a gift that pays you income, or a gift that reduces your taxes—you prepare our students to be leaders in the region, the nation and the world.

Road Map to Our Future: Transformation 2030

San Jose State is experiencing a transformational shift in culture and momentum as a preeminent urban public university committed to academic excellence, diversity and inclusion. With your support, you can be a part of SJSU’s mission. Read more about our strategic plan, Transformation 2030

Thanks to you, we give students access to world-class opportunities in academics, leadership, partnerships and athletics.

Few institutions have been as crucial to Silicon Valley’s success as San Jose State, which trains many of the engineers, software designers and tech savvy business people who keep the Valley’s technology machine rolling.
