Why Become a CSU AOA Sponsor?   

The CSU Auxiliary Organizations Association ("AOA") is the professional association of over 85 auxiliary and enterprise corporations that are part of the nation's largest four-year public university system, the California State University.  Auxiliary enterprises include philanthropic foundations that handle gifts and endowments, research foundations that oversee contracts and grants, enterprise corporations that run bookstores, dining services, and other commercial activities, associated student services and organizations, student unions, and some athletic foundations, and housing corporations. In 2021-22 CSU auxiliary organizations managed $6.3 billion in assets, 24% of the CSU’s combined total assets, and revenues of $1.07 billion. 

As an AOA Business Partner, you can impact the programs and services offered to approximately 486,000 students and nearly 56,000 faculty and staff throughout the CSU. CSU 2023 Fact Book.

AOA Business Partner Sponsors enjoy access to 400-plus AOA and CSU attendees, with multiple opportunities for engagement, networking, brand exposure, and to showcase your products or services,.  The AOA Annual Conference is where auxiliary leaders and staff, and executive leadership, management and staff from the 23 CSU campuses and Chancellor's Office gather to share, learn and collaborate on topics critical to auxiliaries, enterprise operations and the CSU system.  

As an organization committed to serving higher education, your partnership and collaboration with AOA and its membership is essential to the continued success of our auxiliaries and the CSU. 

We would be happy to discuss sponsorship opportunities with you directly. Our Business Partners find their AOA relationships to be extremely valuable and we know that you will, too!
