Annual Giving - The Francis Fund

At the University of St. Francis, our Francis Fund donors make all the difference.

Unrestricted annual support for the Francis Fund helps us continue USF’s long history of anticipating opportunities and responding to emerging needs driven by what we know students can accomplish. Your contribution funds financial aid awards, student and faculty research, internships stipends, chapel maintenance, campus beautification and so much more. Every gift adds up to create the USF experience that is like no other.

Our students’ needs have been exacerbated by the pandemic and they are utilizing our Academic Resource Center (ARC) now more than ever. Your gift will provide additional counselors and tutors in the ARC to ensure their academic success.
