Celebrating Generosity

Rick Virgin

Welcome Alumni and Friends!

I am deeply grateful for your gift to the University of San Diego this past fiscal year. As a part of our Torero family, your dedication is critical in making the world-class education offered at USD accessible to students, so that they may go on to become engaged Changemakers in their communities.

This past year, the University of San Diego raised $35.5 million through philanthropy, and an amazing $3.3 million of this total came from 5,148 alumni donors.

Your continued investment in USD helps ensure the success of our university’s primary mission: to advance academic excellence, expand liberal and professional knowledge, create a diverse and inclusive community, and prepare leaders who are dedicated to changing the world.
