Coryell Legacy Society

Planned Giving and Endowments

Named after legendary Head Coach, Don Coryell, the Coryell Legacy Society recognizes all donors who have created an endowment, contributed $25,000 or more to an existing endowment, or have remembered SDSU Athletics in their estate plans.

Planned Gifts and Endowments help to ensure the future success and growth of SDSU Athletics.

Members of the Coryell Legacy Society are invited to an exclusive event each year to connect and engage with the student-athletes they support.

The Power of an Endowed Gift

An endowment gift to SDSU Athletics today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits. Endowments may be established and named with a gift of at least $50,000.

Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to support scholarship and operational needs. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

Fisher Basketball Endowment

No one has made a more profound impact on SDSU Athletics than former Head Men’s Basketball Coach, Steve Fisher. The Fisher Basketball Endowment was established to generate ongoing support for Aztec Basketball to compete at elite levels.
