Santa Clara Fund

The Big Question: What is the best way to directly support students?

The Santa Clara Fund and the Santa Clara Parents Fund is how we provide more scholarships to more students.  It is the foundation of giving to Santa Clara University because of its support of our core mission of educating leaders of competence, conscience, and compassion. 

View the message from Holly Kelly, Parent Class of 2026, to learn how your gift makes a big difference. No matter which area of campus your family loves, your gift makes a big difference, and the Santa Clara Fund is a great place to start by supporting the overall undergraduate student experience!


Immediate, Direct Impact

100% of the gifts made to the Santa Clara Fund and the Santa Clara Parents Fund go to work immediately to benefit current students.

  • Scholarships
  • Academic programs
  • Study abroad and immersion programs
  • Student initiatives

Define the SCU experience, bring us together, and make SCU open to all! 

At Santa Clara University, we want each student to pursue what they love, to discover themselves, to be brave, strong, giving and compassionate, to be a part of a community that nourishes, challenges, and welcomes, and to be confident in stepping out of comfort zones and making an impact in the world.
