Ensuring the Jewish Future...Theirs. And Ours.


Our mission at USF Hillel is to enrich the lives of the more than 2,000 Jewish undergraduate and graduate students at the University of South Florida. We are a 501(c)3 not for profit organization and depend upon the generosity of parents, alumni and community members to ensure that we fulfill our mission. We are not asking you to make a gift. We're asking you to make an investment. If you care about the future of the Jewish people, especially in the Tampa Bay area and Florida, then we ask you to invest in USF Hillel. Please take a few moments to browse the giving opportunities on this page that will help us provide the best services for our students. Thank you for investing in the Jewish Future... Theirs. And Ours.

Sunday Morning Bagel Brunch


There's nothing better on a Sunday morning for a college student than a bagel and schmear.  For just $100, you can sponsor a bagel brunch at Hillel for 40 students.  A Bagel Brunch builds the Jewish community on campus and is delicious at the same time.

Name an Ice Cream Flavor

Others have 31, but we want 36...flavors that is. Help us reach our 36-Flavors goal! Create your own custom flavor and give it a name! You can name your flavor in honor of a birthday, anniversary, other special occasion, or just because you love ice cream! Your creation will be a featured Flavor of the Month at four (4) weekly USF Hillel Ice Cream Parlors and you will receive two (2) complimentary quarts of your ice cream!

Shabbat Friends


Sponsor a Shabbat dinner at USF Hillel.  Join our students and experience what Shabbat is like at Hillel.  You will be supporting an essential program at Hillel and you'll have a great time with our students.

Send a Student to a National Conference


USF Hillel sends students to national conferences such as the AIPAC Policy Conference, the JNF National Convention, Stand With Us, CAMERA and more.  For $750, you can send one student to a conference and help us to train the next generation of Jewish leaders. 

Passover Seder


If they can't be at home, then the next best place for Jewish students to be on Passover is at Hillel.  An investment of $1,500 will make it possible for Hillel to provide a Kosher for Passover Seder for more than 100 students.

General Support

There are a lot of other needs at Hillel, so please don't think you can only support us by sponsoring specific programs. A general contribution of any amount, whether it's $18, $36, $72, or any amount you prefer, always helps us to better serve our students.  Regardless of the amount of your gift, all of us at USF Hillel appreciate your support.

Hillel Hub

Not every contribution has to be monetary.  If you have tickets to sporting events, concerts or shows that you're not going to use, then please consider donating them to Hillel.  These are great incentives and prizes to get, and keep, students involved.

Planned Giving - Life and Legacy

Our Legacy donors are people who recognize the unique opportunity of Hillel: to engage Jewish students at a time when they are just beginning to make their own choices about what kind of life they will lead and what kind of person they will become.  Please join our Legacy Society and ensure the Jewish future at USF.
