Click here to view your Linked In photo from the May 8th event!The Student Philanthropy Committee are student volunteers working to create awareness about the importance of philanthropy at USF while raising money to provide scholarship support for our fellow students.
We celebrate generosity because without it, USF would not be what it is today; 7 out of every 10 of your friends might not be able to be here. We believe that USF should remain accessible to students from all backgrounds!
Not many people realize that tuition only covers 86% of the cost of a USF education. Donations play an important role in helping to bridge the gap. Although none of us enjoy paying tuition, we appreciate that the generosity of others makes it a little lower!
Approximately 70% of students rely on financial aid, so donations to scholarships are crucial. Without them, 7 out of 10 of our classmates would not have access to a USF education.
The Senior Class Gift is an example of students helping students, and is an important tradition for all students to participate in. Money raised for the Senior Class Gift goes into a scholarship so that other USF students can have the same experiences that you had.
