Rick Giorgetti ’70 and his wife, Terry Giorgetti ’71, were committed to service, right from the start. Early in their marriage, before they could donate money, the couple offered time, talent, and leadership. It’s a simple idea but not always easy to do. As an accomplished CPA, Rick provided crucial assistance in fundraising to many Catholic organizations, nonprofits, and schools. He’s been an enthusiastic supporter of SCU’s Bronco Bench Foundation. In the Foundation’s 54-year history, the program’s endowment has grown to more than $25 million, dispensing over $50 million in support to student athletes.

Court dockets and prisons were worn thin by rising drug offenses. Drug addicts were sent to prison instead of getting the treatment they needed. No one was winning. Judge Lawrence Terry ’57, J.D. ’62sought to change that by helping form Drug Treatment Courts in Santa Clara County in 1994. Judge Terry’s court gained state and national recognition for its innovative work in introducing treatment and recovery into criminal cases. Individuals who would have been sent to prison instead received a second lease on life. For Terry, this court became the embodiment of the Jesuit values he learned about at Santa Clara: that every individual is valuable and redeemable.
