Giving to Santa Clara University

Thank You!

You may wonder why we ask undergraduate alumni to give back every year. While each gift is put to use to fund specific projects and scholarships that benefit students, alumni gifts also have an impact on our participation rate.

The number of alumni who give back each year is used to calculate the participation rate - a number that is used by publications like the US News and World Report. Alumni support is used to calculate school rankings – and each gift makes a difference. The higher Santa Clara's ranking, the more valuable your degree becomes. 

This year a record 6,711 alumni gave back to Santa Clara University. A big thank you to each donor who gave back in support of today's students.
