University Advancement

Our Commitment

University Advancement is dedicated to engaging alumni, parents, and the community in The Chico Experience. We believe that Chico State offers students a unique educational environment that celebrates academic achievement, learning beyond the classroom, and a commitment to civic engagement.

We invite you to join us in strengthening our University for future generations by investing in the people and programs that impact the future of our campus and our students.

The University Foundation

A Governing Board comprised of volunteers and campus leaders ensures that private gifts continue to support Chico State's outstanding reputation for academic achievement, civic engagement, and sustainability. Learn more
