Making A Difference At Carolina

The Family Fund, University of South Carolina's annual faculty and staff campaign, allows current and former employees to become even more engaged in their professional roles. Since its inception 40 years ago, the Family Fund has generated more than $50 million for Carolina. Gifts through the Family Fund help support ground-breaking research, strengthen programs and initiatives, recruit and develop world-class faculty and fund scholarships.

YOUR gift matters!

Your participation through the Family Fund makes an immediate impact. Your gift demonstrates the ultimate vote of confidence in all of our university stands for and everything it will become.

Because of their generous contributions, faculty, staff and retirees were able to make an impact in our students and their educational experiences.

2013 Impact Report

Why should faculty and staff make a family fund gift?

The University of South Carolina counts on annual gifts as the foundation for all other giving, and private support is the difference between being average and being excellent. Such gifts ensure the momentum continues and that students are able to fulfill their dream of becoming Carolina graduates. As faculty and staff, we have the opportunity to enhance our professional development while also making a difference in the lives of students in and out of the classroom.
