University Advancement

The Division of University Advancement is responsible for advancing the mission, vision and priorities of Sonoma State University.  As the North Bay’s premier four-year public university, we proudly serve Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, Solano and Sonoma counties. 

Philanthropy is vitally important to fulfilling the University’s obligation to develop and maintain excellent programs of undergraduate and graduate instruction grounded in the liberal arts and sciences.  Contributions from alumni, friends, faculty, staff, students, corporations and foundations provide essential support for the margin of excellence to sustain our forward momentum. 

With your ongoing help, we will continue to build on our strengths, meet complex needs and promote the aspirations of our campus community. I invite you to explore this website to learn about the many ways in which you can engage and support Sonoma State University.

The generosity of Sonoma State donors is transforming lives every day.  We are grateful for your partnership in your University’s important work.  

Yours for Sonoma,

Mario A. Perez, Ed.D.

Vice President for Advancement
