Leavey Challenge Goal Exceeded

I am pleased to report that the University will receive a $1 million challenge grant from the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Foundation, thanks to the Santa Clara family who rose to the Leavey Challenge. With over 9,000 undergraduate alumni making a gift, we exceeded our Leavey Challenge goal set in July 2012 and reached a 25% participation rate. I am deeply grateful to the alumni among our faculty and staff who helped us meet the challenge! The generosity of our alumni donors and that of the Leavey Foundation help pay it forward to our current and future students who will experience the same transformative education that our alumni experienced. Part of that education is the legacy of generosity and the habit of gratitude which are at the heart of the Bronco family. Thank you for your personal commitment to our students and your spirit of generosity that benefits others.
