Description of Funds

The Padre Fund

The Padre Fund is the cornerstone of Serra’s fundraising efforts each year. It benefits all aspects of our school on an annual basis—our academic program, technology and innovation, campus ministry, student activities and athletics. Through the continued support and commitment of our gracious community of current parents, alumni, parents of alumni and friends, Serra has grown stronger and has expanded on the foundation that we’ve been building since our founding in 1944.

We value the incredible support we have received so far this year. In an effort to reach our goals, we encourage you to make a commitment this fall. Your gift enables us to teach academic excellence, instill an understanding of moral courage and encourage ethical responsibility as our Padres become men of faith, wisdom and service..

Junipero Serra High School Endowment Fund

A gift to Serra’s Endowment will help Serra and its students succeed for decades to come. Gifts are put into an account that grows over time, supporting our Financial Aid Program. Your gift will live on with your support of Serra’s Endowment.

Fund a Dream Scholarship Fund

In 2005, we established our Fund a Dream Scholarship Benefit to raise the additional funds necessary to ensure that all qualified applicants who dream of becoming a Serra Padre are afforded that opportunity.

To date, this event has provided more than $4 million in support of Serra's financial aid program. Your generosity assures the continued support for students who need our help now more than ever. Together, we will continue Serra’s mission for future generations.

The Padre Fund is an annual appeal to alumni, parents of alumni, and friends for unrestricted operating support that will be used where it is needed most in the areas of curriculum development, technology support, faculty development, and financial aid.​​ Please note that you may not split your donation between funds. If you would like to donate to more than one fund, please make a separate donation.​​​​​​
