San Diego, California - San Diego State University is excited to launch its third annual Great Give campaign on Tuesday, September 25. Fans can show their passion for the Aztecs over a 24-hour period, which will help ensure greatness at SDSU for years to come.

The Great Give campaign is intended to engage SDSU alumni and friends through philanthropic support benefiting students, faculty, research and campus programs.

In 2017, SDSU raised over $183,000 for a single day, shattering the total of over $137,000 collected in 2016. This year, the Aztec athletic department will be joining the university in the collaborative goal of $200,000 in pursuit of a new record for dollars raised and donors participating.

Those who are interested in donating can choose between a pair of funds, the Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund and the Band Excellence Fund.

With 21 percent of funding for SDSU’s budget provided by the state, the University continues to focus on the philanthropic donations from alumni, students, parents, friends and community leaders who want to provide the best experience possible for the Aztecs.

Gifts of any amount will be accepted online at throughout the 24-hour period on Sept. 25, or by phone at (619) 594-2586 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT.
