Experiential Initiative

Carlyse Franzia Ciocca ’77 and Arthur Ciocca help fund the education of future business moguls.

An $11 million gift will help educate the business leaders of tomorrow. Alumna Carlyse Franzia Ciocca ’77 and her husband, The Wine Group founder Arthur Ciocca, bestowed $7 million on Santa Clara University in the name of enhancing entrepreneurship on campus. The Charles Koch Foundation supplemented that gift with a $4 million contribution of its own. The donations fund upgrades to existing entrepreneurial programs, enhancements to courses, new faculty hires, and research opportunities in a new initiative.
