The Parents Circle at the University of St. Francis

Great families support great students!

The Parents Circle is an exclusive group of families that are shaping the present and future of the University of St. Francis through their volunteer efforts and philanthropic support. The Parents Circle provides critical support to enhance the overall University of St. Francis educational experience.

By giving to the Parents Fund, Parents Circle members provide critical support that enhances the University of St. Francis experience. The Parents Fund helps enrich University of St. Francis for your student and all USF students – from offering emergency funds to students in crisis to funding special opportunities like mission trips, career services from the Career Success Center and more.

Many Parents Circle members support athletic programs and cultural offerings as well.  Parents Circle members are vital partners in sustaining and enriching the top-notch extra-curricular educational opportunities that USF provides.

Membership year June 1 through May 31

“Parents are an important part of the USF family and community of learners.  They play an integral role in the University of St. Francis’ success. Many give their time, their talents and their financial support to ensure students have the best experience possible during their time at USF.”
