Help Presidio Build a Flourishing Future

We’re a Small Team on a Big Mission

Imagine a world where social equity and environmental stewardship guide the actions of business executives, government leaders, entrepreneurs, and individuals around the world. That is the future we all envision and aspire to. Our generous donors help us make strides toward this mission by funding new degree and certificate programs and providing life-changing financial assistance to students in need.

One of the most critical ways our donors partner with Presidio Graduate School is by supporting student scholarships. Our Founders Fund provides financial assistance through merit and need-based scholarships to students. Learn about our inspiring Presidio founders and the scholarship fund in their honor.

“I can’t begin to express the gratitude I have for being able to pursue an education that has deepened my wisdom regarding systems, contemplative practice, and sustainable solutions. The journey I am on towards the transformation of business and public policy has humbled me every step of the way and I am thankful for the generosity shared by Presidio Graduate School’s donors in helping me achieve this vision. Thanks to the scholarship I received, I have already been able to integrate personally held values into my everyday work as well as join others in my community and their efforts towards some of the transformative changes we seek today. I am excited to be a part of this community and look forward to sharing and growing with them each day. So, again, THANK YOU!”
