Corporations donated $46 million, including three gifts of $1 million or more, one each received by Long Beach, Northridge and San Francisco. Of the total received from corporations, company products accounted for over $3 million (up from $2 million last year).

Foundation contributions increased 32 percent from the prior year, equaling one-third of all charitable gift receipts this year. With 1,067 contributions, private foundations, including family foundations, contributed $85 million, including a $29.4 million gift from a family foundation in support of the CSU Fresno agricultural program.
