Support the Frances G. Harpst Center for Catholic Thought and Culture

If you would like to help the development of exciting new programs and initiatives by the Frances G. Harpst Center for Catholic Thought and Culture (CCTC), please take a moment to explore the many ways in which you and your family, organization or institution can contribute to and support the further growth and development of CCTC's mission.

The open and dialogical character of catholicity in thought, culture and action is celebrated through its activities. Through its work, the CCTC continues to enable and foster the engagement between USD's Catholic identity and its academic mission. The catholicity of the University of San Diego is aptly captured in the gospel-inspired principle 'all are welcome'. The CCTC is responsible for developing and delivering programs relating to Catholic thought and culture for the university and local community alike. These embrace a wide variety of the forms of engagement of the Church with the wider world.

We welcome all gifts no matter how small or large. We also invite you to contact us directly so we can discuss your interest in supporting the future and ongoing development of the Center.
