Drop Shadow

At USD, our students and faculty are making a difference every day on our campus, in our community, across the nation and around the world. But we don't do it alone. We do it through the generosity of alumni, parents and friends — like you — who believe strongly in USD… not only in what we do, but also in how we do it.

Your annual gifts allow us to provide scholarships to deserving students, recruit high-caliber faculty, fund academic research, support our Torero student-athletes, and serve the community in countless ways.

Your gifts can also help build our endowment, the mainstay of USD's future.
By making an endowment contribution, you help our students change the world today and you change our students for a lifetime.
