South Fund

THE SOUTH FUND is a way for alumni, parents, businesses, employees and friends to provide annual support for the University’s goals. Investments in the South Fund are used to elevate USA’s mission to make a difference in the lives of those it serves through promoting discovery, health and learning. Gifts to the South Fund enhance student scholarships, faculty research and quality healthcare.

The South Fund is just one source of funding for the University, but it is a vital source, and one that allows its students, faculty, researchers and healthcare professionals to continue to move forward in the 21st century.

“We are continually working together to elevate USA, and this is not possible without the support of our entire South community.” — DR. TONY WALDROP PRESIDENT - UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH ALABAMA

“The South Fund allows me to invest in a product in which I am genuinely committed. I believe in USA as a conduit to an enhanced quality of life and a greater capacity to contribute to the greater good for students and other stakeholders in
