The Leavey Challenge

Chip in a few bucks—and help Santa Clara unlock $1 million

Ready for a challenge that, with a few bucks, could help change lives for generations to come? If 10,000 recent alumni donate to Santa Clara this year, the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Foundation will give $1 million to SCU. The ante increases annually, to potentially $4 million.

Join us—and pass the word!

Generations of students have already benefited from the support of the Leavey Foundation, established by Thomas E. Leavey ’22 and Dorothy Leavey. Scholarships have made SCU affordable to a diverse range of students. A gift from the foundation made possible the construction of the Leavey Center, home to SCU Athletics. And the foundation invested in programs to enable the Leavey School of Business to become nationally recognized.

So who was Thomas Leavey? Read more about that here.
