Transformational Gift From Public School Teacher

Edward Sabini

Edward Sabini was a schoolteacher in San Francisco and taught business, typing, and accounting at Commerce, Washington, and Mission High Schools. Edward was motivated to make a gift through his will when a very promising student from a family without means had to forgo college and work to support his family. Edward felt strongly that this was a great loss — not only to this young man, but to his family and the community. He desired to make higher education accessible to young people from modest upbringings. Read more.

Edward's strong interest in access to education reflects a core priority of USF: offering a quality Jesuit education to first-generation college students with limited means. The fact that USF ranks sixth in the nation for successfully graduating Pell Grant students makes the university an ideal recipient of Edward's generous legacy. The impact of this gift cannot be understated.

We are grateful to Edward for his generosity and for the generations of USF students who will go on to change the world thanks to the Sabini Scholarship Endowment.
