For nearly 70 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 millions of dollars in institutional support, which helps students who would not be able to obtain a college degree without financial assistance. Our gratitude is extended to all committee members, sponsors, donors and attendees who support our students through this event! We couldn’t do it without you!
