Mary Mathews-Stevens ’84 has been elected to SCU’s Board of Trustees. Along with her husband, Mark, a former partner in the venture-capital firm Sequoia Capital, Mary has been active in education philanthropy with their support of numerous educational organizations in California. Earlier in her career, Mary spent 14 years in the commercial real estate industry in Silicon Valley. She served as a Vice President at Cornish & Carey Commercial Newmark Knight Frank in Santa Clara. Their philanthropy has included a $500,000 gift to endow a fellowship program for graduates of the high school Mary attended in Portland, St. Mary’s Academy, who wish to attend SCU. In a gesture to honor the late former president of Santa Clara University, in 2008 the couple donated $7 million for the Paul L. Locatelli, S.J., Student Activity Center.
