2007-08 Annual Report on External Support to the CSU

Sonoma State University

Contribution Highlights:

  • Schroeder's Recital Hall, at the Donald and Maureen Green Music Center, was named in recognition of a $4 million gift from Jean Schulz, alumna of Sonoma State University and wife of the late cartoonist Charles Schulz.
  • An anonymous donor committed a $2.5 million challenge gift, fully matched dollar-to-dollar, resulting in a total of $5 million in new gifts to support the construction of the Green Music Center, which is destined to become one of the most sought-after music and arts venues in the world, featuring an acoustically superb concert hall that will draw both master and student musicians.
  • Private donations supported the public lecture series "What Physicists Do" and public viewing nights at the observatory.
