Generosity Week Celebrates Philanthropy 

Generosity Week Pierogi 2

Food trucks donated 10 percent of lunch purchases to USF student scholarships, as part of Generosity Week events Feb. 24-28.

USF is honoring donors this week with a series of events to raise awareness about philanthropy on campus.

Look for bows on campus buildings, statues, courtyards and plazas that highlight the gifts that made them possible. And check out the “field of flags” near Gleeson Plaza that represents donors by categories, including students, faculty, alumni, and staff. You can also head over to USF’s social media channels, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Scoop.it, to share how philanthropy at USF has helped you. 

“We want people to walk away from Generosity Week knowing more about philanthropy at USF and how it impacts scholarships, new facilities, and more,” said Christopher Anderson '06, MSOD'09, USF director of annual and special giving.

On Monday, food trucks were on campus for lunch, with 10 percent of sales benefitting student scholarships. On Thursday, USF seniors will serve up free coffee and tea along with more information about philanthropy from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Gleeson Plaza. The student club Pets Are Wonderful Support (P.A.W.S) will also be on hand with puppies.

Generosity Week is sponsored by the Student Philanthropy Committee.
