Anthony Scaramucci, founder and co-managing partner of SkyBridge Capital, a global alternative investment firm, has donated $100,000 to Sacred Heart University for student scholarships. The gift will be used to establish the Anthony Scaramucci Scholarship Fund. Recipients of the fund will be students who are enrolled in the John F. Welch College of Business.

Scaramucci has a long history of philanthropy. He is a board member of Warrior Gateway and the Brain Tumor Foundation and serves on the Board of Advisers for the Harvard Law School Leadership Counsel. He previously served a five-year term on the Board of the School of Arts & Sciences at Tufts University. He was honored in 2011 for his generosity by Hedge Fund Caresat its 13th Annual New York Open Your Heart to the Children Benefit and Alicia Keys’ Keep a Child Alive 8th Annual Black Ball.

“My friend, Bobby Valentine, who has long been involved with Sacred Heart, has shared with me the exciting way the school has grown in size and reputation over the past 50 years. He also shared that the majority of the students would not be able to attend SHU without the help of those who support the University’s scholarship funds,” Scaramucci said. “After receiving an outstanding college education at Tufts and Harvard Law School, I know the impact that college has on future success. It is my pleasure to ensure that others have the same opportunities that I had.”
