Santa Clara through and through
Emma Anderson lived to be 92, passing away on March 31, 2012. She was a lifelong resident of Santa Clara. For more than 40 years she was married to Jack Anderson, and she kept the books for their business, Globe Printing Company, well known for printing tickets for concert venues and sports teams, including her beloved Giants.
After Jack’s death in 1989, Emma ran Globe and became involved in SCU’s Catala Club, an organization for women to help further Santa Clara University’s educational mission. She learned about the financial needs of current students, and she wanted to make sure those needs were met.
Anderson made a gift to the university—a charitable gift annuity—that was invested and provided her with a steady income during her lifetime. After she passed away she left a major bequest to SCU that totaled more than $8 million, which in addition to her gift annuity, went to fund student scholarships for the Catala Club, becoming the Emma Shane Anderson Endowed Scholarship Fund.
This March, Catala honors Anderson’s life and her enthusiasm for Santa Clara’s students. From a marriage in Saint Clare’s Church presided over by the late Wilfred H. Crowley, S.J., to running a local business to her charitable giving, Anderson’s life was deeply intertwined with this place—and her legacy continues in the alumni and current students attending college thanks to her support.
A personal note of thanks to SCU alumni. You came through in record numbers to secure a $1 million gift for the University.
