Your Impact

When you support University of the Pacific, you ensure that our mission is carried out in the following key areas:

Student Scholarships 

Scholarships help increase access to a Pacific education by allowing students to freely pursue their passions, unhindered by financial stress or the prospect of insurmountable debt. They honor academic and scholarly achievements, a commitment to community and a relentless pursuit of purpose.    

Listen to student speakers at the Stockton Scholarship Appreciation Luncheon share their stories of how scholarships changed their lives.

Innovative Learning Opportunities

Donor-supported programs offer community service and experiential learning opportunities that set Pacific students up for success in a competitive workplace. 

See how William Peralta ’20 combined his love of music and helping others to become a music therapist.  


Faculty Recruitment & Research

Your support allows Pacific to recruit and retain talented, student-centered professors committed to engaging and nurturing their classes. Philanthropy also funds groundbreaking faculty research and scholarly pursuits that have the power to change lives.

Student Experience & Facilities 

State-of-the-art facilities, underwritten by donor gifts, create ideal teaching and learning environments. They also promote research and athletic excellence to the benefit of students, faculty and the entire extended Pacific Family. 

Thanks to gifts and donations from generous alumni and friends, the William Knox Holt Memorial Library and Learning Center has been reimagined and reopened as a center for 21st century teaching and learning.

I have now found a roaring purpose that cannot be silenced… Pacific has made this possible.
