Chico State Giving Day

Giving Day at Chico State

Thank You!

This Chico State Giving Day, 2,846 donors raised $329,137 in support of 161 causes!

Because of you, Chico State Giving Day was bigger and more successful than ever before—we hit a record number of donors, a record number of dollars, and a record number of causes supported.

These gifts will go a long way in our mission to transform lives through education, applied research, and public services. We are so grateful for your support. Check out your favorite funds below to see how much progress they made towards their goals.

Chico State Fund

crowd of graduates in regalia

(Goal: $75,000)

This flexible fund allows us to meet the greatest needs of our people and programs whenever and however they arise. Because the money's not designated to specific scholarship or department, it can be put to use right away where ever it's needed the most. Whether it's supporting basic needs, establishing new tutoring centers, or funding student-faculty research partnerships, the Chico State Fund helps fill the gaps between state funding and designated gifts.
