Engineering the Future of San Francisco State University

A photograph of Terrance E. MancillaTerrance E. Mancilla is sharing his wealth with SF State.

Terrance E. Mancilla (B.S., '72) enjoyed a success­ful career as an engineer at Hewlett-Packard. Now he's helping build the future of San Francisco State University. Not only has he taught classes at his alma mater, but he's also made the SF State College of Science and Engineering a beneficiary of a generous portion of his estate.

"I chose to leave a legacy to SF State because I received an affordable education, and I think tomorrow's students deserve that as well," Mancilla says. "As federal and state funding is reduced, it's very important to help the University so that it can survive and teach future generations of California students. Just think, if everyone put SF State in their will, even for just $500, what an incredible help to SF State, and the future, that would be."

Through estate and planned gifts, alumni and friends -- across all income levels -- have the opportunity to provide significant, even transformational support to San Francisco State University. For more information, contact University Development Planned Giving at ggr@sfsu.edu or 415/405-3809.
