Sponsor the California Prize Dinner

USF invites individuals and businesses to join us as sponsors of the California Prize gala dinner. We gratefully acknowledge the sponsors and business supporters who help the university host this signature event.

This signature event highlights one of USF's most defining and distinguishing factors — community engagement and public service for the common good. As the university of and for San Francisco, USF prepares students for lives and careers of ethical service to others, in keeping with the university's Jesuit values.
