USF’s Annual Fund Makes a Difference

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is a key source of financial support that impacts virtually everything at the University of Saint Francis. Gifts to the Annual Fund are important because they:

  • Provide financial aid for deserving students
  • Further the university’s global service efforts
  • Enhance academic and student life
  • Advance our Catholic mission
  • Support USF’s areas of greatest need

Why give to the Annual Fund?

There are many good reasons to give to the Annual Fund. Here are just a few:

  • Helping a student advance in life is a pretty good return on investment.
  • Alumni giving rates affect college rankings — and a higher ranking makes every USF degree more valuable.
  • USF depends on the Annual Fund. Other areas of income, including endowment earnings, cover only a small part of USF’s annual operating expenses.
  • Giving back to USF feels right because your university has given so much to you.

So the real question is, why not give to the Annual Fund?
