Renaissance Society members are a vital part of the Sacramento State family, and we are so grateful for the many ways each member gives back to our community. We appreciate your considering a gift to support Sacramento State students and Renaissance Society programming.
The Renaissance Society has made a significant impact at Sac State through our support of scholarships and other endeavors such as the ASI Food Pantry. Thank you, Renaissance Society Members, for making these amazing opportunities possible.
Renaissance Society Scholarship Fund
The Renaissance Society Scholarship Program will celebrate 30 years of providing scholarships to deserving students in 2023. This year, the RS will surpass one quarter of a million dollars in total scholarships! The Renaissance Society Scholarship program began 30 years ago, in 1993, by members Doug Fulton and Lou Weintraub with two $500 awards. Since then, it has grown to seven scholarships of $3,000 each. Our scholarship totals from 1993 through 2022 amount to $248,000 in awards to 114 students.
Renaissance Society Endowment Fund
Thanks to the generosity of our members, we are not only funding current scholarships, we are also able to create one $75,000 endowment that will perpetually generate one $3,000 scholarship starting in 2024. We are hopefully on pace to announcing a second endowment scholarship this year! One of these scholarships was the result of donations surpassing $21,000 over the last few years.
