How to Give

Every contribution to the USD fund is viewed as important. Whether it is great or small, donations like yours help build our Torero future.

Gifts of any size are welcome and can be designated to support a particular school or college, program, scholarship, Torero Athletics team, or facility. Gifts also can be directed to the Alcala Alumni Fund, which supports USD's current area of greatest need.

There are many ways to make your tax-deductible gift to the University of San Diego! Donations may be made through cash or checks, credit card, securities or real estate and other tangible property. Gifts may be designated to honor a person's memory or to commemorate a significant event.

No matter how or where you chose to make your gift to USD, your generosity is greatly appreciated by our students!
