Celebrating YOU!

Each and every gift makes a profound impact. You make us UNSTOPPABLE.

Here at the University of South Florida Foundation, we are amazed by the dedication of our students, our faculty and staff, alumni, and most of all … you. You're the reason why USF does more than just exist. We excel. We exceed. And we are charging ahead because of your support. So please enjoy the many stories that celebrate our successes in this year's Performance Report. The truth is, they are celebrating you – and all you do.

Just as someone else has lifted us, we have an obligation to lift others. There are so many people who - without an education - will not lead full lives.
