Santa Clara's enduring partnerships with private and corporate foundations drive continued program innovations and opportunities for students and faculty. By working with foundations of all sizes, we forge vital connections with community and industry leaders who value Santa Clara's educational heritage and commitment to meet the challenges of the 21st century. We also collaborate to enhance the Silicon Valley region through direct service projects in K-12 education, neighborhood development, environmental awareness, and small business creation.
Partnerships That Work
Our current portfolio of foundation partnerships represents a range of disciplines, cultural values, and gift formats. Such diversity lends a richness and vitality to the SCU experience, providing members of the University community with opportunities to apply and build upon classroom learning. Here are just a few examples of current foundation-supported projects, faculty chairs, and scholar programs:
Immediate Needs and Addressing Future Challenges
We are happy to work with your foundation to design a giving program that meets the objectives of your donor-advised fund or foundation guidelines. Santa Clara also maintains a dedicated Sponsored Projects Office to manage active grants with intensive financial reporting requirements or detailed intellectual property provisions. We welcome foundation inquiries and campus visits, and invite you to contact us for more information on foundation funding opportunities that can make a difference for SCU students and faculty.
