Friends of the Sierra Nevada Field Campus is an independent non-profit organization created to support the Sierra Nevada Field Campus, a program of San Francisco State University’s College of Science & Engineering.

What are FRIENDS for?

Long sustained on a modest budget by dedicated staff and volunteers, the Sierra Nevada Field Campus needs help. Friends of the S N F C — an all- volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization — was created in 2017 to raise funds to upgrade SNFC facilities, boost student attendance, and coordinate volunteer efforts. Can you join us?

Yes! Count me in as a FRIEND of the Sierra Nevada Field Campus!
