Marcia Syufy on Supporting Saint Mary's

For almost four decades, Marcia Syufy has been helping Saint Mary’s College students through the Raymond J. Syufy Annual Scholarship. Established by Marcia and her late husband, Raymond J. Syufy ’40, the fund has provided almost $700,000 to deserving students in need. Marcia has had a long history with the College. Not only did her husband graduate as a Gael, but sons Raymond ’84 and Joseph ’87, and her daughter-in-law, Michelle ’88, did as well.

“With the high cost of living in the Bay Area and education costs rising, we wanted to ensure that students who wished to attend Saint Mary’s had a chance. Now more than ever, scholarship support is critical and is one way of helping those families achieve this goal,” said Marcia.

In addition to their scholarship support, the Syufy family’s impact can be seen all across campus, from athletics, to recreation, to the Performing Arts, and even the residence halls. The student experience is enriched by their generous and longtime loyal support.
