The continuing success of the USF: Unstoppable Campaign has strengthened the ability of the faculty and students of the USF System to make a real difference around the world and here at home. Thanks to benefactors like you, countless lives are improved every day, in ways both large and small.
From the streets of Tampa to the orphanages of Central America, gifts to the USF: Unstoppable Campaign have made direct contribution in the improvement of the lives of others. In short, it is thanks to people just like you that USF students and faculty are making what was once impossible, possible.
Creating Hope, Building a Shared Future
During the first phase of the USF: Unstoppable Campaign, people just like you made gifts to the USF System. As they did so, they undoubtedly had the lives of others in mind – perhaps the lives of students or faculty members. But, as so often can be the case, the impact of these gifts traveled far beyond the boundaries of the campuses that comprise the USF System.
Before the USF: Unstoppable Campaign, young people in the Ybor City region of Tampa -- some homeless, all without health insurance and in dire straits -- had little medical recourse for maladies both minor and life-threatening. Because of the generosity of the Lazydays Employee Foundation, a new clinic, maintained and managed by USF Morsani College of Medicine faculty and students, has changed this for the better. Our medical students benefit from the real-world working experience, and the at-risk youth of Tampa benefit even more.
Before the USF: Unstoppable Campaign, USF Honors College students were not traveling on service-learning trips to Central America and the Caribbean. The generosity of USF benefactor Claudia McCorkle, among many others, has changed this – and changed the lives of the people these Honors College students travel to serve. From providing medical services and relief supplies to laying the foundation for a new orphanage in Panama, these students are making an unstoppable impact.
Phase Two: Broadening the Impact
We won’t stop our efforts to change lives both at home and abroad. In fact, with your help, we will strive to make an even greater impact during the next phase of the USF: Unstoppable Campaign. Whether through giving to the new Patel College of Global Sustainability, to create faculty chairs focused on urban studies, or through providing more scholarship opportunities for students hoping to study – and serve –abroad, you can help us make a real difference.
We’re counting on you to help us. You can then count on us to help others. In this way, our combined efforts will be unstoppable.
