The Father Thomas Seagrave Fund supports students with a demonstrated financial need who exemplify academic achievement, leadership, and community service.
Father Seagrave was known for his dedicated work ethic and his incredible generosity. Notably, he would use his own personal resources to pay tuition for students at Catholic schools throughout the years.
Inspired by Father Seagrave’s vision, Riordan has launched The Father Thomas Seagrave Fund – Saber es Poder (Knowledge is Power) to continue his important work of supporting San Francisco students and their families who desire a Catholic education. The fund is modeled after a scholarship currently offered at University of San Francisco.
Although the fund is designed to support Riordan’s strong Latino population, which currently stands at 25 percent, it will be open to all deserving students who need tuition assistance.
