Who We Are
We are students from all academic programs within Fox uniting to work towards a common philanthropic mission.
What We Do
As an organization, we have three major goals:
- Contribute to a University-wide culture of philanthropy
- Raise awareness among Fox students about the importance of student giving
- Increase giving among Fox Students, with a special emphasis on the Student Emergency Fund
The Student Emergency Fund is a safety net for students going through unexpected financial hardship, and allows them to continue their schooling. About 12 Fox students each year request this funding – including Taylor and Rasheena
, who will graduate with the Class of 2016.Make your gift today – you never know who might benefit from your generosity!
Help make a difference in the lives of your fellow Fox students while gaining experience in the following areas:
- Event planning
- Social Media
- And more!
General meetings are held on Mondays from 12 – 1. All interested students are welcome. Contact FSPS@temple.edu
“Prior to transferring to Temple, I had to withdraw from my last institution. My mom was laid off and could no longer support me in school.I decided to apply to Temple because of the opportunities available at Fox. Because of my withdrawal, I was ineligible for the state grant. I explained my situation to Temple’s financial aid office, and they offered me a one-time grant covering the rest of my tuition.Thanks to this grant, I will graduate with the Class of 2016!”
“Funding my college career has been a struggle for my parents. My mom was laid off when I was in high school and decided to go back to school just as I was headed off to college myself. All of this meant a lot of weight on my shoulders, and a constant thought that maybe I should take a break from school and save up before I attempted to return to college.I received the Fox Faculty and Staff Scholarship my sophomore year. This scholarship meant that I could worry a little bit less about money, and more about my school work.Because of scholarships like this, I was given the chance to continue at Temple and will be graduating with the Class of 2016!”
