For over 60 years, the annual Caritas Scholarship Celebration has served as the primary fundraiser for University of St. Francis scholarships. Caritas helps to make a college education possible for so many bright students… many who are the first in their family to attend college. Each year, USF provides them with over $23 million in institutional support, which makes a difference for many students who would not be able to obtain a college degree without financial assistance. Your Caritas support means the world!

Your gift of $5,000 helps a student realize their dream of becoming a nurse and changing lives by giving back to the community with the gifts they take with them when they graduate from the university.
FRIENDS SPONSOR – $1,000
Your investment of $1,000 helps provide resource support for our student teachers to realize higher levels of success in their journey to earn their degree. This sponsorship also allows you the opportunity to participate in a watch party either in your home or via Zoom.
