The Here & Now Fund, formerly known as the Annual Fund, is the University of Southern Indiana Foundation’s structure to provide immediate assistance to our students. Throughout the academic year, USI must be ready at any given moment to act in support student development beyond the projected, budgeted items. The Here & Now Fund is called upon to enhance the student experience as priorities shift for the University. The delivery of student achievement and success is enriched here and now at our campus by gifts from alumni, friends, and the USI family.
The renaming of this fund is meant to clearly articulate that any gift will immediately impact our campus and stand resolute for both current and future students. The cause endures to nurture a campus that leverages student talent within the region and to this mission, the fund will provide support. For the USI Foundation, the stewardship of this fund must meet the needs of the University, while impacting our students.
