Family Fund

The Family Fund is the University of South Carolina Upstate’s annual faculty and staff giving campaign.

Since the university was founded in 1967, the Family Fund has generated more than $2.2 million to support a range of needs that help create transformative opportunities - scholarships to help students afford college, funds to support high impact practices like study abroad, hardship assistance for our students in need, as well as other high priority projects and support services. Additionally, academic departments depend on private funds raised to augment resources for classroom equipment and professional development; this, all to enrich the student experience at USC Upstate.

Why Should I support the Family Fund?

Everyone has their reasons for supporting the University of South Carolina Upstate.

Beyond the daily work you do for the university, a financial investment is a great way to show your support in USC Upstate and the students we serve.
