A Message of Gratitude


Father Michael E. Engh

Dear Friends,

Thank you to all the Santa Clara family who rose to the Leavey Challenge! With over 9,000 undergraduate alumni making a gift, we exceeded our goal and will receive a $1 million challenge gift from the Leavey Foundation.


The Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Foundation is giving $1 million
to the University because more than 9,000 undergraduate alumni
made a gift this school year.


Your generosity and that of the Leavey Foundation help pay it forward to our current and future students who will experience the same transformative education that you, our alumni, experienced.

Part of that education is the legacy of generosity and the habit of gratitude which are at the heart of the Bronco family. I am deeply grateful for the personal commitment you have made to our students and for modeling a spirit of generosity for the benefit of others. 


Michael E. Engh, S.J.
