Supporting The Chico Experience

At Chico State, students find faculty who care about their success in the classroom and beyond. Students explore new ideas, discover opportunities to develop leadership skills and serve their community, and cultivate connections that extend far beyond the boundaries of our campus. The Experience Excellence website details how your support has transformed our campus.

University Advancement’s fundraising and development team leverages philanthropic support that enhances The Chico Experience. These individuals work with deans and senior administrators to increase funding for student scholarships, faculty research, and academic enhancements. The advancement staff builds relationships with alumni, parents, and friends to foster a connection with the campus and discover their philanthropic interests, and then finds meaningful ways to recognize their contributions.
