Students First! Employee Giving

Thank you employee donors! Because of generous faculty, staff, and administrators, the 2018 Students First! Employee Giving Campaign was a huge success. As of today, 78% or 1,475 employees collectively made gifts totaling over $600,000 to benefit USD students! Remember, all gifts, no matter the amount, have a huge impact on current students. It's not too late to show your support for students by making your gift today on a credit card or through payroll deduction.
