Foundation Financial Services

Mission Statement

The Fresno State Foundation’s mission is to advance the University’s strategic objectives by encouraging philanthropy, inspiring leadership, promoting fiscal accountability, and engaging in efforts that support research activities.

Travel Update

In following closely with campus policy, effective June 1, 2021, travel utilizing Foundation funds will be allowed if essential for academic success, professional development and for the benefit of the University.  For those Foundation programs that fall under Academic Affairs, all domestic travel will require pre-approval by the respective School/College Dean.  For all other Foundation programs, all domestic travel will require pre-approval by the respective Vice President. 

Pre-approval may be supported with an email, and must include a description of why the travel is considered essential.  When a travel reimbursement claim is submitted to the Foundation, please include a copy of the documentation that demonstrates the travel was approved in advance.  Failure to provide may delay the Foundation’s ability to process payment.

If you have any questions, please contact Keith Kompsi at (559) 278-0838 or
