Dr. Arvid C. Johnson

Dear USF Society Members,

For the past ten years, you have been leaders in the USF community through your generous annual support. Your gifts to our endowment, special programs and the Francis Fund open many doors for our students.

We at the University know that your investment is much more than monetary. Your generosity extends through your time by serving on boards and committees, attending on-campus events, enjoying athletic matches and student performances, meeting and mentoring your scholarship recipients, and even enjoying presentations and lectures. Many times your gifts have financed these opportunities.

You’re the key to our students’ success!

Your partnership, the mission of the University, and the Franciscan values that we instill enable us to continue serving and leading our students as they prepare to go out into the world.

This year, as always, we ask that you give once again to your favorite designation at USF. We, also, ask that you consider an additional investment to support Franciscan projects at the University. This additional gift will enrich the lives of our students by providing opportunities by which our mission can come to life.

I thank you once again for your dedication and support of the University of St. Francis. You are truly the leaders of this university, and I assure you that each gift you make will be used to continue providing students with a Catholic, Franciscan, liberal arts education.

PS: If you’d like, make your gift on the inaugural Day of Giving on October 2, 2014!
