Sponsoring the California Prize Dinner

For more information or to become a California Prize Dinner sponsor, please contact: Michelle Sklar, University of San Francisco, Office of Development, (415) 422-6657 or msklar@usfca.edu

USF invites individuals and businesses interested in supporting the goals of the California Prize to join us as California Prize Dinner Sponsors. 

Proceeds from the California Prize Dinner directly benefit service learning programs at USF, supporting projects such as the design, construction, and maintenance of the Bridgeview Learning Garden in Bayview-Hunters Point. Through service learning projects, USF art + architecture students built a library for AIDS orphans in Zambia; nursing students have worked alongside midwives in impoverished communities in Latin America; students are participating in sustainable development internships in Uganda and Bolivia; and computer science students are bridging the digital divide by creating computer labs in under-resourced schools throughout the Bay Area. 

Offered in every college and academic discipline, USF's service learning programs prepare students for lives and careers of ethical service.

USF is honored to recognize the generosity of California Prize Dinner Sponsors whose gifts support students' passion for service and the university's commitment to community-based learning. The names of each sponsor will be prominently featured in all printed and electronic event materials. During the 2012 dinner event, USF welcomed sponsors as distinguished guests-connecting them with extraordinary students who contribute and serve the global community.
