Go All In for the Cabrini Fund!
SCU’s immigrant students need your support now more than ever!
Named in honor of the patron saint of immigrants, Saint Francis Xavier Cabrini, this fund supports the needs of immigrant students. In line with Santa Clara University's mission to serve the most disadvantaged of our community members, this fund helps to ensure that these students, who face some of the most challenging educational paths, have the opportunity to succeed at SCU. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and an uncertain political landscape, these students need our support more than ever!
Your donation will make an impact by funding:
- Applied learning experiences such as volunteering, shadowing and unpaid internships
- Legal expenses
- Emergency and educational expenses, such as emergency travel, laptop replacement or repair and other needs
Students comment on the importance of the Cabrini Fund:
"Through the Cabrini Fund, I was able to receive funds to file a first-time application for DACA. The Cabrini Fund's assistance will allow me to seek employment in the engineering field and apply for opportunities that I was previously ineligible for. This funding will have a lasting impact for years to come, and I am tremendously grateful for this support!"
— Ana*, class of 2023
“It is important to support the Cabrini Fund because undocumented students have been so resilient in the face of the unprecedented changes in migration-related policy this year. With your donations, we can help students in need of funding for DACA applications, COVID-19 emergency needs, and get them a step closer to achieving their career goals!”
