On Sunday, May 18th at 6pm, Santa Clara University will bring together Silicon Valley and all who have a heart for a more just, sustainable world for an evening celebrating the social enterprise movement and its leaders.
Join us, as we honor two extraordinary individuals – Sally Osberg of Skoll Foundation and Graham Macmillan of Citi Foundation – whose work embodies singular compassion, broad vision, and systemic change through social enterprise.
The evening will feature a cocktail hour showcase of innovations for humanity by social entrepreneurs, student fellows, and Jesuit institutions across the world, a grand dinner, and a room full of people who want more impact and more meaningful lives.
Tickets for Magis are $225 each or $400/pair, and table sponsorships range from $1500 to $10,000. Tickets, tables, sponsorships, an explanation of the name Magis, and more details are available at scu.edu/magis, or by contacting Jen Jayme at firstname.lastname@example.org or 408-554-2132.
Social entrepreneurship applies business principles to solve problems such as poverty and environmental threats, and holds great promise to help billions globally.
Magis: (“mah-jis”) is a Latin word for “more.” St. Ignatius of Loyola used the word Magis to encourage us to live and give generously.
In the Ignatian tradition, Magis means continually asking ourselves: What more can I do for others? Magis is a call to action. It challenges us to do more than a single act, but rather to serve humanity with our lives.
