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.
Dr. Wade Weast Director, School of Music College of The Arts

"Without the assistance of scholarships, I would have struggled in obtaining my college education. Because of this, I feel that I must give back to make a difference in the lives of students, like other individuals did for me."

As the Director of the School of Music, Dr. Wade Weast is a strong advocate of fundraising for the School of Music and the university. "I always stress to have 100% giving participation among all of the faculty and staff members in the School of Music. Just as it is essential to get the backing of all colleagues as we plan the building of our new School of Music, it is vital to have talented and capable students coming into our program."

Dr. Weast makes his contribution to the General Music fund located in the College of Music. This fund is comprised of a committee which disperses scholarships to worthy candidates. "This fund helps the University of South Florida compete with area schools when attracting talented musicians."
