​Why I Give

"I learned early on that support and encouragement were essential to my success. I believe it's important to support my community. If we are to be successful, we need to support our students and the faculty & staff giving campaign makes it possible."- Lorena Sanchez, Purchasing/HUB Coordinator

"It's my privilege to work with numerous dedicated and inspiring colleagues during my tenure at UHD. Several of these persons now have scholarship funds set up in their memory, including June Wood, Susan Ahern, Elias Deeba and Ongard Sirisaengtaksin. I always feel blessed to contribute to these funds and honor the memory of the outstanding educators who played such an important role in my professional life and the growth of the institution."- William Waller, Associate Dean, University College

"By giving, I am able to remember and honor people who touched my life greatly."- Mitsue Nakamura, Lecturer of Mathematics & Statistics

"I give because giving even the most modest donation provides the means to our community to help improve the quality of life of those most vulnerable."- Debra Shouldice, Parking Technician, University Business Services

"The cost of a college education continues to grow, and the severity of the financial burden is growing. Those who have been fortunate enough to be educated by the college and university system should help make education a reality to those who are seeking an education."- Houston S. Brown, Lecturer, Chemistry

"I give to UHD for the same reason that I work here—to support UHD's mission of offering education and opportunity to students from all backgrounds. At UHD, my work and my contribution can change people's lives. I have the chance to make a difference every day."- Pat Ensor, Executive Director, Library Services

"I give to help create opportunities for our diverse student body."- Whitney Morgan, Assistant Professor, Marilyn Davies College of Business

"As a first-generation college graduate, scholarships helped finance my education. Knowing that I can make a difference in someone's educational dreams and goals, like others did for me, is so rewarding."- Jacqueline K. Trahan, Coordinator, Student Affairs

"I like the idea that somewhere someone is getting a boost based on my donation. It's a random act of kindness and helps me be the person that I think I am."- Grace Davila, Director of Technical Services
