Supporting Passions: Students, Donors Connect at Scholarship Luncheon
Erin Lupfer '17, who graduated from the USD School of Law with her JD in May, spoke at the University of San Diego's Scholarship Appreciation Luncheon on March 30, 2017. She urged fellow Toreros to support their passions while also helping future Toreros. Feelings of gratitude, along with in-person connections, were in abundance throughout the forums in the Hahn University Center, which was packed with students who were excited to meet, share lunch with and thank their donors.
The 30th annual USD Scholarship Appreciation Luncheon provided the latest reminder of the generosity of people. Those who donate to the university are from all walks of life. They donate for a multitude of reasons, and they may or may not even be USD alumni.
What these donors all have in common is an understanding of the power of gifts that assist students with their educations. Thank you to our donors who generously contribute to help students on the path to fulfilling their passions and their roles in our global society.
Each year, scholarship benefactors and their student scholarship recipients come together for the luncheon, which features a USD school or program and is complete with speakers. This year's well-attended Torero thank you event showcased the named scholarships at USD's School of Law.
Named scholarships provide a tangible way for benefactors to create lasting legacies that will stand as a testimony to their values and passions while providing scholarship support that will make a lasting difference for generations of Toreros year after year.
Most of the nearly 400 benefactors and representatives who attended the luncheon made a decision to create a named scholarship that will change the lives of USD students for decades to come. Many donors leave the annual luncheon with feelings of joy and gratitude for being able to help educate bright and promising young students who they actually spent some time getting to know.
