The USF Fund

Giving to the USF Fund provides an immediate impact on the lives of students, faculty, and staff at the University of San Francisco. The Fund supports the University’s mission to educate leaders who will fashion a more humane and just world by funding three critical areas: Greatest Need, Academic Excellence, and the Student Experience.

Greatest Need 

Every day, leadership faces important decisions that affect the quality of a University of San Francisco education. Your donation to the USF Fund directed toward the University’s Greatest Need, empowers leadership to act on strategic insights, take calculated risks, and invest with our faculty, staff, and students in the creation of new knowledge. Your extraordinary support makes you a close partner with USF and its leaders.

Academic Excellence  

Our faculty and student success—in the lab, library, and in the classroom, through research and work in our communities—is our collective success. Your gift to the USF Fund, directed toward Academic Excellence, empowers leadership to act on strategic insights, take calculated risks, and invest with our faculty and students in the creation of new knowledge; such as supporting immersion experience, supporting undergraduate and graduate research projects, and much more. Your extraordinary support makes you a close partner with USF and its leaders.  

Support Academic Excellence

Student Experiences

A USF education does not stop in the classroom, library, or laboratory. Your gift to the USF Fund directed toward the Student Experience creates a comprehensive student experience supporting research experiences, internships, immersion programs, entrepreneurship opportunities, and academic competition, and much more.  Your extraordinary support makes you a close partner with USF students.  

Support student experiences
