President’s Circle for Excellence

Dedicated to ensuring positive and enriching student experiences on and off campus

The President’s Circle for Excellence is a fund that is critical to achieving the University’s mission of student success. It supports the little things on campus that make a big difference in ensuring positive student experiences.

Our students are talented and they work hard. These leadership gifts have enabled me to provide much-needed support for projects like DiscoverE, the Student Cupboard, and the Good Samaritan Fund. These projects remove barriers that get in the way…things that we may take for granted, like the need for food, access to technology or financial means when facing a short-term setback.  

Giving a leadership gift of $1,000 or more to the President’s Circle for Excellence has an immediate impact on the lives of our students. Thank you!

Fresno State Annual Fund

Your support has a powerful impact on improving student success

The Fresno State Annual Fund gives a boost to programs and projects needing a little “extra fuel.” These flexible funds help students with scholarship support, leadership development and learning experiences that prepare them to serve and lead in the communities where they will work and live. 

As Fresno State continues to boldly educate and empower students, the annual fund is one small piece that supports student success.

We know that every dollar is precious for our students and families and that’s why donations help support student scholarships to our hard-working, deserving students. Giving to the Fresno State Annual Fund is an investment that helps students become our next generation of leaders.

Sincerely,

President Joseph I. Castro
