Give to Fresno State

Create Your Legacy at Fresno State

Your investment in Fresno State has the power to fuel the success of our hardworking and talented students who will become our next generation of leaders and uplift the quality of life in the Central Valley and beyond. 

Planned gifts not only provide Fresno State with a future source of support, but can also help to preserve the assets of your estate from unnecessary taxation. A collaboration between your advisors and our Office of Planned Giving will ensure that your estate gift will be used for the specific college, school, scholarship, program, or project that you desire.
