The Climb

In 2021, our university launched the boldest chapter yet of the SDSU legacy.

We embarked on Bold & Blue, the largest fundraising campaign on record in South Dakota, on October 21. That night, we announced our ambitious goal to raise $500 million – and it’s going to require unprecedented momentum to get there.

Together, we can empower the university to do what it does best: transform lives. While the campaign was publicly launched in a day, our journey to that landmark goal of $500 million will be achieved one impactful day, and one impactful step, at a time.

With the help of the Concert Choir, we delivered a spectacular performance at the Campanile to share our dream of a brighter tomorrow at SDSU.

Every milestone, every accomplishment, and every Jackrabbit brings us closer in our climb to make history – and the view from the top will be nothing short of remarkable.

Thank you for helping us build what comes next.
