Give to SFA

How to give to SFA

SFA accepts gifts of cash, securities, life insurance, real estate and personal property. Each giving option has its own tax and financial implications and advantages, which we would be happy to discuss with you and your family. Rest assured: whichever option you select, your impact will be greatly felt across campus and appreciated for years to come.


Why give to SFA

Your gift to SFA is an investment in the future. Gifts to SFA create the foundation for teaching and learning that empowers the Lumberjack experience. With inspiring educators who make lifelong impressions and a campus that includes modern facilities and equipment, future generations of Lumberjacks will benefit from the foresight and generosity of those who came before them. And one of the most rewarding things you can do is to become involved in our scholarship endowment efforts for students attending SFA. Imagine the pride you would feel in helping students gain an education at SFA.

Alumni Association

Lifelong connections

The SFA Alumni Association welcomes you to visit the on-campus office and to participate in activities that engage current students, alumni and friends of SFA. Along with the university, the association publishes the “Sawdust” magazine, serves as a sponsor for SFA’s annual homecoming weekend and presents annual awards to an outstanding faculty member and outstanding alumni. SFA students can join Tomorrow’s Alumni Generation (TAG) to get a great start in networking and building lifelong alumni relationships filled with Lumberjack spirit and pride.
