California State University Donations Hit Record High Figures
Thompson said Sac State has many events which tie the campus to the public, such as art openings, music events and football games. Thompson said that alumni who come back to the campus for sporting events and music events tend to be the ones who donate money to the school.
Last year a community council of 50 to 100 local businesses met with professors on campus to share ideas on how to run a small business."These types of events are important," said Thompson, "because they keep people coming to the campus who have an interest in the students' futures."
