The Faculty & Staff Campaign for the University of South Florida is a fundraising effort that allows you, the employees of USF, to make a gift to the area of your choice at the University. These gifts stay at USF, and make a lasting impact in each area that you choose to support.
Joe DeSalvo Professor, Department of Economics College of Business Administration

"Over the years I have given to a wide variety of entities under the umbrella of the Faculty & Staff Campaign, depending on what my wife and I thought needed our help the most in any given year."

Joe DeSalvo describes his giving as, "...the feeling that I want to help support the Institution in which I am can support the Institution in a variety of ways; one way is simply by doing your job, but another way is to support good causes here at USF." The Faculty & Staff Campaign provides that opportunity for USF employees to support causes here at USF.

Joe believes that giving is a personal choice that comes from wanting to support something one feels is significant. "I think that it's important for the Faculty & Staff to donate to causes that they think are worthwhile," and he sees the Faculty & Staff Campaign as his opportunity to do just that. "Over the course of the years, I have given to a variety of different entities under the umbrella of the Faculty & Staff Campaign." Joe's donations have ranged from the USF Women's Club to the Center for Economic Policy Analysis.

Joe DeSalvo describes his giving behavior at USF as opportunistic, "It depends on what my wife and I think needs our help the most at that time."
