Making A Difference At Carolina

The Family Fund, South Carolina's annual faculty/staff campaign, allows University faculty, staff and retirees to become even more engaged in their professional roles. Since its inception over 38 years ago, the Family Fund has generated more than $44 million for Carolina. Gifts from faculty, staff, and retirees support an array of scholarships and departmental initiatives as well as the University's most vital and emerging needs. Together we can make a difference at Carolina!

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.
