Support A Brighter Future, Invest in University of the Pacific

U.S. News & World Report has named it among the nation's top universities. Distinguished alumni include former NASA astronaut and Pacific Regent Jose Hernandez; Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Sakeena Yacoobi, and visionary jazz musician Dave Brubeck.

The University relies on private support to achieve the greatness it has experienced since 1851. Thanks to our Pacific Family members' generosity, the University offers merit and need-based scholarships and fellowships to talented students; attracts and retains distinguished faculty; builds world-class and award-winning centers and educational facilities; and offers academic training to outstanding students in the Central Valley, throughout California and around the world.

Our current top priority is helping make a Pacific education more affordable through student scholarships. Make your year-end gift count by giving to one of Pacific's priorities: 

  • Student Scholarships: 100% of Pacific Fund donations goes to supporting student centered learning experiences. Contributions fund Student Scholarships and Pacific Fund Grants. Give to the Pacific Fund >>
  • San Francisco Campus: The future home to the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, this state-of-the-art building will greatly benefit the school's students, programs and patients, giving University of the Pacific a bold new Bay Area presence. Give to the San Francisco Campus >>
Note: Starting January 1, 2013, amounts for endowed scholarships will increase from $25,000 to $50,000. Learn more about the change >>


Your philanthropic support is an investment in tomorrow's leaders. Every gift, no matter the size, counts and truly makes a meaningful difference for the University.

Thank you for your critical support of Pacific's mission to provide the best education found anywhere.
