Class Gift of 2017! Make a lasting impact for all Gators -- past, present and future

The Class Gift is a way for graduating students to give back. Before you graduate and go on to do extraordinary things, leave a legacy at SF State for those who will follow in your footsteps. This year’s Class Gift supports the HOPE Fund Crisis Loan, a fund that assists students when they need it most. The funding streams are as follows:

  • General-use emergency funding
    Funds donated to a general unrestricted funding pool will be disbursed to students facing unforeseen emergencies and crisis situations.
  • Basic needs funding
    Many SF State students are food insecure, and go without three square meals a day. Also, high costs of living in San Francisco and not enough available housing on campus, means that many students face the choice of commuting long distances to get to school, or living in sub-standard conditions. A HOPE Fund gift designated specifically for students who are food and/or housing insecure, will be disbursed in the form of meal cards that can be used anywhere on campus. Students receiving food insecurity relief through the HOPE Fund will enjoy flexibility and choice in determining what and where they want to eat on campus. Basic needs funding will also be used to subsidize housing expenses for students who are at risk of becoming homeless.
  • Sexual violence/domestic violence crisis support
    Designated funds within the HOPE Fund will also be used to provide support to students who are victims of sexual and/or domestic violence.

Consider giving today and help students in crisis situations. Or, for more informaiton visit the HOPE Fund Crisis Loan webpage.
