If 10,000 recent alumni donate to the University this year, the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Foundation will give $1 million to SCU. The challenge continues over the next four years with the ante increasing annually to potentially $4 million.

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 that enable the Leavey School of Business to become nationally recognized.
