Support the Ignatian Center

How you can help: Your support will work to further our mission to promote and enhance the distinctively Jesuit, Catholic tradition of education at Santa Clara University.

  • A gift to the Community-based Learning Program will expand the walls of the classroom by providing real-world opportunities for students to collaborate and engage with neighboring schools and nonprofits.
  • A gift to the Immersion Program will increase the number of opportunities for students to gain a deeper understanding of local and global issues through a social justice lens.
  • A gift to the Ignatian Spirituality Program will enhance ways of incorporating spiritual exercises into our daily life for SCU students, faculty and staff.
  • A gift to Bannan Institutes will extend our ability to reach more SCU and greater community members in dialogue around issues of contemporary religious and cultural debate.
