Thank you for your patience as we adjust to this evolving situation.

Fund A Dream Fundraiser still going strong

Thank you to all of our supporters who saw the imminent need to raise funds for our tuition assistance program through Fund a Dream. Even though we had to cancel our actual gathering, the community came together to support this important mission.

Fund a Dream is more than a social event, it is a fundraiser dedicated solely to tuition assistance for Padres who would like to attend Serra but do not have the money to do so. Over the course of 15 years, the Serra community has raised $5 million in this effort. To date, this year, we have collectively raised nearly $375,000. 

We are so grateful for your generosity, especially during these times of economic uncertainty.  This challenging situation only underscores our need to continue to provide this opportunity for future and current Padres. 

We believe the need is now more than ever. We need to support the young men who aspire to be formed in a community of faith who will go forward to make a difference in the world - Now more than ever. 

We are deeply grateful for your support - Now more than ever!
