The Family Fund is an annual giving campaign that offers USC Upstate faculty, staff, and retirees the opportunity to make personal gifts to the University that will have a direct impact on the campus, our students and employees. Gifts can be made by
using our pledge form or
by donating online.
These gifts strengthen our future by providing student support, funding scholarships and supporting the mission of the University: teaching, research and service.
Every contribution, no matter what size, adds value and strength to the USC Upstate campus and enables us to better serve our students! For additional information, please contact Bea Walters Smith at 864-503-5235 or
This year’s theme: “Hands on Upstate” will offer weekly prizes:
The 2014-15 Family Fund Campaign begins August 20, University Day and continues through June 30. In hopes of increasing our participation rate, we will be focusing on the first 6 weeks, but gifts are accepted throughout the year.
Gifts and pledges of any amounts are welcome and appreciated.
USC Upstate has a diverse population of students, faculty, staff and retirees - from different countries, with different ideas and goals. But we all have something in common - we ALL CHOOSE to be a part of USC Upstate. Show your support by designating your gift to the fund of your
choice: academics, athletics, scholarships, beautification or Susan Jacobs Arboretum, SNAC or a specific fund.
Every dollar counts, no matter the amount. And, all gifts are tax-deducible.
Building on the success of last year’s campaign, our goal this year is to raise $100,000 or more with the highest participation EVER.
The Family Fund is an on-campus initiative that is a part of the Carolina’s Promise Campaign. Your gift counts toward the goals of both campaigns.
"Giving to the Family Fund provides ‘the oil’ that makes our University run smoothly and effectively. Please help lubricate our institution!"
"I donate to the Family Fund as a way to support the programs and/or students of USC Upstate and make a difference. I give via payroll deduction so small contributions each pay period add up to a larger gift ove the year. I designate my gift to the school of nursing so we build a contingency fund for faculty/student needs. Please help us support our Family Fund."
