Throughout the year, we host a variety of events to recognize the many ways our alumni, employees, parents, and friends support the University of St. Francis. These events are aimed to showcase the university in unique and memorable ways, engage internal and external audiences, and create exceptional USF experiences.
- USF Society Events: Events throughout the fall and spring.
USF Society members support the university’s mission and vision through leadership levels ($1,000+) of annual giving. These exclusive events ensure our biggest supporters are able to see the amazing work we do.
- Day of Giving: During Feast of St. Francis Week each year.
This is a day designed for giving! All donors are encouraged to join in solidarity and make their contribution to the university on the same day during Feast of St. Francis Week. 2015 was the second year for this fun fundraising event.
- Ambassador Day: In autumn each year.
Ambassador Day at the University of St. Francis is a special opportunity for leaders, like you, to become more engaged in USF’s mission and to deepen your understanding of the importance of the University in our community. View the Ambassador Day Invitation.
