The University Foundation
One of three CSU, Chico auxiliaries, the University Foundation is the steward of gifts and endowments for the entire campus. The foundation was organized and incorporated as a nonprofit California corporation in 1940, with a mission to support and enhance campus projects and programs. In 1997, its function became solely philanthropic.
A governing board provides fiduciary oversight and endowment management, and serves to engage parents and the community in charitable giving.
A gift to the University Foundation is an investment in the future of Chico State, a gift that helps to ensure the success of our students. With your support, we transform education. Learn more.
