Alumni Participation Rate

Alumni participation rate (APR) is the percentage of alumni who make a financial contribution to their alma mater. It is universally regarded as a key metric used to determine national rankings and financial support received from corporations and foundations.

Whether $100 or $10, donations from alumni, no matter the size, make a difference! As more alumni contribute, the higher San Francisco State University’s rankings will be, increasing the value of an SF State degree, which makes alumni more valuable to potential employers and graduate schools. 

You can specify the area of SF State that you want your gift to benefit, or support the Students First scholarship campaign for a direct impact on student success.
