Dear Serra Supporters, 

Each year since 2005, our Fund a Dream Scholarship Benefit has helped raise the additional funds necessary to ensure that all qualified applicants who dream of becoming a Serra Padre are afforded that opportunity. Since its inception, Serra's Fund a Dream event has raised more than $6 million.

We are committed to keeping open the possibility for any qualified student who dreams of a Serra college preparatory education. This year, with a rising need for tuition assistance, we are focused on raising the funds necessary to educate these talented future leaders.

Fund a Dream is a dynamic event that unites Serra’s alumni, current and past parents, and friends of Serra to celebrate the school’s proud history and exciting future. This dinner social event is held during the spring semester and is a fun-filled evening where keynote speakers have captivated the community with stories about their high school days, career highlights and philanthropic endeavors.

All proceeds from this annual event, generated by donations, cash gifts and table sponsorships, directly support the Tuition Assistance Program. Don’t wait, secure your table today!

 

With your help, we can make a young man's dream of a Serra education come true!"
