The Tower Society

Building a Bold Tomorrow

North State Public Radio is a proud service of Chico State. The Tower Society is the University and North State Public Radio’s leadership giving program, which engages and honors our most dedicated and generous supporters. In addition to providing vital funding directly to NSPR, members can also direct their giving to programs and initiatives across campus that support students, faculty, staff, and the communities we serve. 

For more information on leadership giving to NSPR or other areas of the University, please contact University Advancement Vice President Ahmad Boura, or 530-898-3590.
