Stewardship & Donor Relations

Building Lasting Relationships

Through meaningful and consistent contact with friends and donors, University Advancement aids fundraising efforts by building lifelong relationships that instill trust that donors' gifts and investments support the success of our students and the University.

The Office of Stewardship and Donor Relations is responsible for the comprehensive, consistent, and appropriate recognition and stewardship of all donors to the University, including donor recognition events, acknowledgements, donor plaque installations, and oversite of the annual, lifetime, and planned giving societies.

Heritage Circle

The Heritage Circle honors donors who have included Chico State in their estate plans through trusts, bequests, or other forms of planned giving. 

Cornerstone Endowments

Cornerstone Endowments recognizes donors who have made a legacy gift to Chico State by endowing a fund to benefit students or university programs in perpetuity. The name of your endowment will be placed on the Cornerstone Endowments permanent recognition display in Kendall Hall.
