Giving to Santa Clara University

Thank You

Your gift makes a difference. By giving to Santa Clara University, you are helping educate the leaders of the future.

SCU students express their appreciation:

"When my family’s financial situation changed after my freshman year, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to return to Santa Clara.  Luckily, the University assisted with additional funding for me to stay in school. The Santa Clara Fund is able to provide scholarship aid and help other student programs such as study abroad, student clubs, club sports and immersion trips. I’m grateful to alumni for their donations and it’s made all the difference for my future."
Chris Paschal, Class of 2013

"As I look back on the many amazing experiences these past four years, I know my time at Santa Clara has been made possible by generous alumni who gave back.Thanks to everyone who made these experiences possible."
—Christopher Freeburg, Class of 2011,
Recipient of the 2011 Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, S.J. Award

"I am so glad that I came to Santa Clara University for my undergraduate education. Thank you for the opportunities that you have given me and other students whose experiences at SCU have been enriched by your generous donations to the Santa Clara Fund."
Heidi Cossentine, Class of 2012

"My family, I would say, is by no means poor. But up until last year, my brother was also attending college and so my parents were paying two college tuitions at once. Recently, my mom started her first round of chemotherapy after being diagnosed with cancer. So having to pay for pills, doctor visits and treatment also has taken a lot of the money that both my parents work hard to make. So because of the scholarships I have received, I have been able to go to the school of my dreams without affecting my parents lives in a negative way. Thank you so much for your generous donations."
Veronica Garcia, Class of 2012
