The President's Circle

Transforming Sacramento by Transforming our Students

The President's Circle

Through the President's Circle, you can help equip our students to flourish, not just survive, in our ever-changing world.

Sacramento State students have risen to the challenges created by an unprecedented year. Hornet creativity, virtual learning, and isolation have led to innovation and determination. While our students are finding ways to advance their academic goals in the face of adversity, they are also facing uncertainty when it comes to their basic needs. An unexpected financial emergency could mean that a student must choose between their education and their daily survival.

The President's Circle is a very special circle of donors who have a direct and immediate impact by supporting our students through the ASI Food Pantry, the Seth Nelsen Student Emergency Grant Fund, Emergency Housing, future Study Abroad travel grants, and other emerging needs. Below are last year's programmatic impacts and, based on the year-to-date numbers and the pandemic-related challenges facing our students, the need is projected to increase.

  • Fed over 13,000 people, which included students and their children/family
  • Aided over 55 students experiencing a need to cover emergency expenses, including medical bills and transportation obstacles
  • Provide temporary housing to 20 students (and their children) 
  • Equipped 15 students with a global mindset through study abroad assistance
