Dear MCU Supporter,

As Marymount California University begins a new academic year, we are reminded of the many years that have led us to this point. Marymount is set to celebrate our 50th anniversary of life-changing work in higher education. Today, Marymount California University provides an awe-inspiring location where real world learning and our long-standing Catholic tradition set the scene for success today and in the future.

The official motto of our university is Tua Luce Dirige, which means “Guide us by Your light.” This light shines on our academic excellence and guides our conviction that each student is sacred. This light led our founders, the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, atop this picturesque hill to illumine the future paths of thousands of students over the past five decades. This light will direct us throughout the next fifty years and beyond.

On September 29, 2018, we will celebrate our 50th anniversary on the beautiful Marymount campus. In anticipation of this milestone, we are planning an event deserving of this once-in-a-lifetime occasion. We invite you to share in this celebration by joining us as one of our valued event sponsors. Your dedicated support will not only help to make this event a true success, but it will set MCU on a course to light the way for our next half-century of inspiration.

We offer several opportunities to participate in this epic celebration. Please take a moment to review the attached sponsorship form. Since our event is biennial, we offer you the convenience and option to pay your sponsorship in two separate annual installments. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Ruben Barajas at (310) 303-7293 or We look forward to hearing from you soon.

In gratitude,
