Support Metro

With Metro, your donation goes farther. 

A recent cost study determined that Metro requires an additional investment of $955 per student per year for two years—a 6.7% increase—yet reduces overall costs per graduate by 13.6%, or more than $13,000, leveraging each dollar investment more than seven times.

This demonstrates that with a modest investment in the first two years of college for historically underserved students, we can eliminate the equity gap in college degree attainment in a cost-effective manner. This critical achievement shows a model for closing the equity gap in college completion, delivering well prepared diverse graduates to lead their communities and contribute to the local, regional, and state economy.

Please consider supporting Metro with a one-time donation or with a monthly donation as your support has a lasting impact on Metro students and our communities.

To make a donation by mail, please send a check payable to "University Corporation San Francisco State" with your gift's designation (e.g., Metro College Success Program) on the memo line to:

Office of University Development
San Francisco State University
