SF State moves closer to its fundraising goal for the Science & Engineering Innovation Center thanks to the Genentech Foundation and other partners

San Francisco State University has received commitments totaling more than $10 million from the Genentech Foundation and other partners in support of the new Science & Engineering Innovation Center (SEIC). The gifts mark the public launch of San Francisco State’s Catalyze the Future campaign to raise $25 million from private sources. With the California State University system investing $150 million to fully cover the facility’s construction, $25 million in privately raised funds will provide leading-edge research equipment and support to student success initiatives and programming related to SEIC.
