The Fund for Sonoma State

Annual donations to The Fund for Sonoma State help sustain the unique and in-demand programs that attract quality students and excellent faculty. These gifts are typically unrestricted, but may be designated to the School or program of your choosing. Gifts to The Fund for Sonoma State are an investment in the students, programs and people at SSU and are critical to the university's mission.

SSU/SFSU Phone Calling Partnership

Did you receive a phone call? Sonoma State University and The Fund for Sonoma State are partnering with San Francisco State University to make phone calls to alumni, parents and friends to garner support for campus priorities. If you have any questions about The Fund for Sonoma State or a phone call you may have received, please contact Laurie Ogg, Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Relations at 707.664.2036 or Laurie.Ogg@sonoma.edu

University Leadership Circle

The University Leadership Circle was established to recognize and thank leadership donors whose generous support provides a financial foundation for Sonoma State University’s academic programs. Members enjoy a special relationship with the university and personal satisfaction in playing a critical role in supporting our mission. Your investment funds a level of excellence which is not possible through tuition and state assistance alone.

University Leadership Circle gifts help SSU meet campus priority needs and fund our signature programs, The Fund for Sonoma State Scholarship, The Provost’s Faculty/Student Research Initiative and WolfBucks for Books. Gifts of $250 and up will receive special recognition on our online donor honor roll and receive invitations to various campus events including the University Leadership Circle recognition event.

Programs Supported by The Fund for Sonoma State
WolfBucks for Books

WolfBucks for Books is designed to address the funding gap and timing issues that students sometimes experience at the start of the school year.  In some instances our students are waiting two to three weeks after the semester starts to purchase their books because they are waiting for a financial aid refund check or their first paycheck.  Wolfbucks for Books helps students start off the semester successfully by providing them with scholarships in the form of WolfBucks, SSU’s campus currency, and provides them funds in hand to purchase their textbooks, food or other supplies before several class sessions have passed.  The Fund for Sonoma State provided 18 WolfBucks for Books awards fall 2012 and our goal is to raise funds to award 50 for fall 2013. Read about our 2012 recipients.

Provost’s faculty student research initiative

A critical element for student success is our ability to offer our undergraduate students a research experience and the chance to work side-by-side with our top research faculty. The benefit of student research is without question.  Every gift has a great impact on our undergraduate students as this enables them to participate in cutting edge research.  Your support of The Fund for Sonoma State will directly impact the quantity and availability of research opportunities for students.  Research experiences can change a student’s life, and you can help make it happen.  Your leadership gift of $1,000 will support a student/faculty research partnership for the academic year.

The Fund for Sonoma State Scholarships

The Fund for Sonoma State Scholarship is designated to provide scholarships to outstanding SSU students.
