To Fellow SCU Alumni and Friends of Father Coz:
My name is Steve Erbst, class of ’88. Like many of you, I am a good friend/fan of Father Coz. As I reflect on my SCU experience ranging from playing soccer, being a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, economics classes, and supporting friends through their sporting events, my memories in class, or at games with Fr. Coz are extensive. It seems we could always count on his support as many of us participated in soccer, football, basketball, lacrosse, water polo, or rugby. I suspect there is also a common Coz thread among all of us in our post – SCU life with wedding ceremonies and baptisms that have involved Padre.
Seven years ago, my goal of creating a scholarship in the name of Fr. Coz became a reality. It has been extremely rewarding seeing the hundreds of Fr. Coz friends join my family in supporting of current students in the name of Fr. Coz. This year the fund has crested the $800,000 mark and awarded its tenth scholarship.
What can you do to help?
• Spread the word about the Pause for Coz Endowed Scholarship.
• Help us reach our goal of raising over $1,000,000 for the Fr. Coz Endowed Scholarship Fund. A passionate group of Coz supporters has generously offered to match every gift over the next two years, up to a total of $100,000. Make your gift today to the Fr. Coz Scholarship and it will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
I realize that we all contribute in our own way to Santa Clara and/or have other financial commitments, so I sincerely appreciate any support that you could provide to ensure the success of this scholarship.
