Lone Mountain Legacy Scholarship Campaign

In celebration of the 80th anniversary of the first class to graduate from San Francisco College for Women/Lone Mountain, the 2013-15 board of the Alumnae of the Sacred Heart Lone Mountain is launching a campaign to grow the Lone Mountain Legacy Scholarship Fund at USF’s School of Education to $2 million.

Be MardelWith the current endowment at $140,000 and bequest intentions totaling an additional $500,000, the board hopes to achieve its goal through a combination of outright gifts, including irrevocable life income gifts as well as gifts of non-cash assets, and revocable gifts, including bequest intentions, IRA and life insurance beneficiaries by December 31, 2015.

"The value of Catholic education for our larger society cannot be underestimated, especially in this time of extraordinary need for visionary leaders whose lives are connected, mind, body, heart, and soul. This is why I have committed my life to this work."
