At USD, our students and faculty make a difference every day on our campus, in our community, across the nation and around the world. The Covid-19 pandemic have brought about myriad unforeseen challenges over the past year, and this public health crisis and subsequent economic impact has been felt by the entire Torero Community. It is through the generosity of alumni, parents and friends — like you, who believe strongly in USD — that this institution is able to meet the most urgent challenges facing our world.

Your annual gifts allow us to provide critical, current-use scholarships to students who need help more than ever before. Additionally, with your help, we are able to recruit high-caliber faculty, fund academic research, support our Torero student-athletes, and serve the community in countless ways.

Your gift may be the difference in a student’s decision to continue their education at USD, and go on to become Changemakers at a time when the world needs them the most.
