Give to the Dugoni School

Class Gift Challenge

Fundraising progress for the campaign: 65.19% participation, $49,364.68 raised

The Class Gift is an annual gesture of gratitude by the graduating DDS and IDS classes for the outstanding education they received at Pacific Dugoni. Started by the Class of 2008 to thank family, friends, faculty, staff and administration for their encouragement, the gift has annually received exceptional support in both the amount raised and number of class members who participate.

Donations support the Pacific Dugoni Annual Fund and will be used by Dean Patrick J. Ferrillo, Jr. for the school's most pressing needs. In 2014 the Fund will support improvements to the group practice clinic model and patient experience.

Why Should You Give?

Your gift says "thank you" to the Pacific Dugoni family for all that you received while you were a student. By giving back you will continue a wonderful tradition of philanthropy and celebrate Pacific Dugoni's mission, vision and values.

If you wish to acknowledge someone special, such as a faculty, staff, or family member, you may make your gift in their honor or memory. They or their family will receive notification of your gift which will also be acknowledged in the next edition of the alumni magazine Contact Point.

Our Goal

The 2014 committee has set an ambitious goal to raise $50,000 and garner 100% participation from the class members. The class has received two matching gifts of $3,500 from the Pacific Dugoni Foundation and the Alumni Association.
