What Is #ToreroTuesday?

#ToreroTuesday is our way of encouraging alumni, friends, and family of the University of San Diego to support students during #GivingTuesday, the globally recognized day of giving and philanthropy. Last year, we raised over $100,000 in donations. This year, we’re setting our goal at $150,000. Let’s make November 29th our best #ToreroTuesday yet!

Support Torero Athletics

We encourage friends, alumni and parents of USD Athletics to come together to support their favorite programs to provide the best possible experience for our student-athletes. Continuing our commitment to help and make a difference in our community, the USD Athletics Department will once again donate community service hours for every $100 raised toward athletics during this year’s #ToreroTuesday. When you donate to USD Athletics, your gift counts twice!
