Planned Giving and Endowments

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.


Leave a Legacy

A gift in your will or estate plans to support SDSU Athletics is a wonderful way to build a legacy. This future gift is an extension of your current commitment and support – one that will ensure a secure and brighter future for generations of Aztec student-athletes to come.

We will work with you to find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support SDSU Athletics.
