Grassroots USF Employee Giving

Annually, the University of St. Francis Grassroots Employee Giving Campaign encourages faculty and staff to recognize the impact our gifts of time, talent and resources have on USF students and our daily operations on all campuses.

Why give?

Your gift directly supports USF students. Your gift, no matter the amount, is important to the future of University of St. Francis. Our goal is 100% participation for our deserving students.

What areas can I support?

  • Freshman Scholarships: Opening the doors to USF is a major priority and we are hopeful that supporting freshman scholarships will help not only our students but also recruit more future Saints.
  • St. Clare Campus Entrance: Signage and first impressions are everything. A new sign for the St. Clare building will make it much easier for everyone to know where to go.
  • Student Emergency Fund: This fund provides confidential limited emergency financial assistance to students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses forcing them to consider withdrawal from the university.
  • Francis Fund: Your gift to the Francis Fund directly supports USF students, providing scholarship support, campus ministry and outreach efforts, academic programming and other critical needs.
  • Your Choice: Are you passionate about a specific program or initiative on campus? We invite you to consider investing in an area that means something to you.
