Power of One Day April 23 and Levy Ethics Challenge

Monday, Apr. 21, 2014

Donate here

Santa Clara University will hold its first ever one-day online giving challenge on Wednesday, April 23, with a goal of
1,001 people making a donation in 24 hours. The Markkula Center for Applied Ethics is thrilled to announce the first ever "Levy Ethics Challenge." A very generous couple, Dick and Sue Levy, have made a $100,000 Challenge to match - dollar for dollar - all gifts to the Ethics Center from April 23 through June 30th.

Your gift will empower the Ethics Center staff to:

  • Bring great speakers from around the globe who illuminate current issues in ethics. So far this year, gifts from donors enabled us to present over 30 speakers and panelists. Contributions also helped us to host His Holiness the Dalai Lama in February, while an additional gift enabled us to livestream the event.
  • Increase our online presence. This year, over 2.8 million people visited our website for guidance in solving ethical issues and for materials to teach ethics to students of all ages. Another 2,000 signed up for our Massive Open Online Course in business ethics, and we look forward to expanding even further.
  • Provide internships and fellowships in health care ethics, environmental ethics, business ethics, and more. We have over 240 alumni of these programs, and they report that their experience here provided them with the knowledge and the courage to make ethical decisions in all aspects of their lives.  

    Your investment is crucial!  Thank you in advance for making your All In for SCU gift to the Ethics Center
    on April 23 here.
