The University of St. Francis will be bringing the 65th Caritas Scholarship Ball back on campus Saturday, January 29. This year’s event, hosted by Arvid & Anne Johnson, will honor the University of St. Francis Board of Trustees.
For over 60 years, the annual Caritas Scholarship Ball has served as USF’s primary fundraiser for student scholarships. We know how important of a role this financial support has when it comes to making a college education possible for USF students. Each year, the University of St. Francis provides over $23 million in institutional support to USF students, many of whom are first-generation college students. These scholarships make a difference for many students who may not be able to attend and obtain a college degree.
Purchase tickets and join us for an exciting night out in support of student scholarships at the University of St. Francis.
We are looking for donations of auction items (valued at $1,000 or above) for Caritas. Items such as vacation homes, trips, tickets or concerts or sporting events, artwork, and unique experiences are highly valued—and there are tax benefits to making in-kind donations!
Sponsorships are essential to the success of this event. Read on to see the levels and benefits of this year’s sponsorships.
Your gift of $10,000 will help in providing five business students with a $2,000 scholarship for the year.
Your investment of $7,500 will help afford students, like Lucy, the opportunity to pursue her double major in biology and chemistry. Lucy’s ultimate goal is to become a family physician and the gift of education at USF will ensure her patient approach is a compassionate one.
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.
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.
