Did you know the College of Health and Human Services can take your gift and match it dollar-for-dollar? Through the Presidential Collaborative, gifts up to $150,000, are matched by the offices of the President and Provost. This allows donors the unique opportunity to double their investment to help student scholars within CHHS.

Support of the Honors Scholars Program will benefit students of all majors within the college: Communicative Disorders and Deaf Studies, Kinesiology, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Public Health, Recreation Administration and Social Work Education.

The mission of the college is to empower students to live well and promote a holistic approach to improving quality of life – mind, body and spirit – of the individual and community. CHHS is among the largest colleges at Fresno State, offering undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees in a variety of health care and human service fields. A gift to the Presidential Collaborative will not only help the colleges’ mission, but will also play a role in improving the well-being of the Central California region.
