Make a Difference & Give to What Moves You!
Here at the USF School of Public Affairs, we are constantly amazed by the dedication of our students, faculty, and most of all… you! Your gift ensures students learn, faculty inspire, researchers innovate, and so much more.
When you give a gift, it touches the entire USF community and beyond. How could it not? Think about it. A scholarship for a student impacts a family. A donation to a program provides equipment for a whole class. All it takes is one gift to transform lives.
