Our Day of Giving may be over, but please click here to still support SCU.
SCU•Presents Performing Arts Center

SCU•Presents Performing Arts Center is at the heART of live events at Santa Clara University. Are you ready to gasp, belly laugh, wonder, cry, grin from ear-to-ear, and reconnect with your arts family? You deserve an experience that brings you joy! Don’t you think?  



At the core of SCU•Presents PAC is our Arts for Social Justice Program, a vital outreach program that raises awareness of critical issues through different art mediums and is a catalyst for change in our community.



Our project with the greatest impact focuses on our communities' most important asset: our children. The Arts for Social Justice program changes lives across Northern California with our touring presentations The Circuit and Breaking Through by Francisco Jiménez. These honest, powerful, and heartwarming semi-autobiographical plays follow the Jiménez family, an undocumented Mexican-American family, as they journey across the border through the fields of California. Over 10,000 students in 50 local schools have seen the plays… that’s a lot of little hearts that have been affected by the power of theatre!



A generous donor of SCU•Presents PAC has contributed a substantial donation to this fundraising drive and has challenged us to match their gift. This is your chance to make an even greater impact!  Please help us match this gift up to $21,000, so crucial work will continue to be offered through the Arts for Social Justice Program. Your gift will: 

  • Bring Arts for Social Justice programming to our local schools and reach students with these compassionate plays. 
  • Allow SCU students to develop art projects focused on social justice issues.
  • Create a catalyst for change in your own backyard when these projects are presented to our children, friends, and families. 
  • Establish Arts for Social Justice partnerships and give voices to artists in our community.



Imagine the world we can create together. We can’t do it without you. Any gift helps and is appreciated.
