The USF Advancement Team
At the fastest-rising university in America, our passionate team continues the cycle of success by fostering an atmosphere of collaboration and innovation. University of South Florida (USF) Advancement connects the university with donors who want to make a difference by providing private philanthropic support to promote student success, academic initiatives, research and other strategic priorities.
Our integrated team encompasses alumni, development and foundation operations. The team of approximately 190 professional staff, including 70 fundraising professionals, raises more than $100 million annually. USF Advancement works closely with the academic and health science deans, athletics, and the campuses in Tampa, Sarasota-Manatee and St. Petersburg.
In June 2017, the USF Foundation completed a $1 billion capital campaign. The University of South Florida’s endowment now exceeds $600 million in value. In 2023, USF joined the Association of American Universities (AAU), the most prestigious association in higher education.
