What is the Family Fund?The purpose of Family Fund is to give faculty, staff and
retirees the opportunity to join as a community and express their support for
the University and its students. Family Fund is considered any gift to the
University of South Carolina Upstate made by faculty, staff or retiree. The
gift can be for any amount and any designation.
I already work here so why should I give?USC Upstate is a unique campus with a diverse student body,
faculty and staff. The needs of our students are clearly apparent to us and
the desire to support their personal and educational goals drive us to do more.
Donating to support our students and enhance their educational experience makes
USC Upstate a better place to work, teach and research.
When is my gift due?There is no set due date. Gifts are accepted year-round.
May I designate my gift to any USC Upstate area on campus?Absolutely. Simply complete your Family Fund pledge card indicating the account name where you would like your gift designated. Your gift may be designated to more than one area or as an “unrestricted” gift.
What are my payment options?Choose the most convenient way for you: Payroll deduction, credit card, check, or a pledge for which you will be invoiced. (Please note that all payments for the Family Fund are made out to the USC Upstate Foundation.)
What is the USC Upstate Foundation?The USC Upstate Foundation was formed to promote a foundation to generate and accept private gifts for the exclusive use of the University of South Carolina Upstate.
Is there a goal?Our goal is to raise $150,000 this year to benefit students and the academic programs through the Family Fund. This goal is totaled by the response to the Family Fund pledge card.
What if I have other questions?Please call the Advancement Office at (864) 503-5306 or contact Stephen Frey.
