Family Fund Campaign:
Battle of the Buildings
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 funding scholarships, making capital improvements and supporting the mission of the University, which is 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!
This year’s theme: “Battle of the Buildings” will offer weekly prizes: Exxon Gas Gift cards, four NASCAR tickets, Sodexho Holiday Package, Dinner at the Piedmont Club with Chancellor and Mrs. Moore, Golf Package at Willow Creek, and a weekend getaway to Folly Beach. Drawings will be held every Friday beginning August 23 through Friday, September 27 and announced on Mondays in the weekly Newsroom email. The 2013-2014 Family Fund Campaign begins on August 1, 2013 and continues through June 30, 2014. We are focusing on the six-week period between August 23 and September 27 to focus on the participation rate, but gifts are accepted throughout the year.
Gifts and pledges of any amounts are welcome and appreciated. Be sure to check The Newsroom for dates and information.

USC Upstate has 23 buildings/groups including The George, UCG and our Retirees participating in this year’s campaign. Each building/group has identified “Team Captains” to help encourage their colleagues to support the Family Fund. Any building/group that reaches 100% participation will receive a special luncheon- so make your gift TODAY!
Building on the success of last year’s campaign, our goal this year is to raise $100,000 with a 65% participation rate. With your help we can do it!
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.
Download your pledge form and return it with your payment information to the USC Upstate Foundation, or make a donation now online. Participation is key to our success.
