The University of San Francisco: Parent Relations

The Parents Fund

By making a gift to the Parents Fund you can have a direct impact on the educational experience of undergraduate students at the University of San Francisco. Your unrestricted gift will support the university’s core priorities, and help us educate minds and hearts to change the world.

Your gift truly makes a difference. Here are some of the projects that are partially funded by the generous donations of parents like you:

  • Service learning, study abroad and immersion experiences. Hundreds of USF students participate in these life-changing experiences every year. From teaching English in San Francisco’s Mission District, to building houses in South Africa, and serving as nurse midwives in Guatemala, our students learn how giving back can greatly enhance their own lives.
  • The Learning and Writing Center is used by more than 1,300 undergraduates each year. It helps students think more clearly, write more effectively, and improve academic performance.
  • The USF Career Services Center serves more than 2,000 students a year. It helps students discover job opportunities, perfect resumes, and practice the interview skills that can make the difference in landing that first job.
  • The new Center for Science and Innovation (CSI) will transform the heart of the USF campus and establish USF as a leader in undergraduate science education. The project will provide 57,000 square feet of space for cutting edge science education, and will also create a bold new gathering space for the entire university community.  You can learn more about this exciting project at
