FSPS MembersWho 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:

  • Fundraising
  • Event planning
  • Marketing
  • Social Media
  • And more!

General meetings are held on Mondays from 12 – 1. All interested students are welcome. Contact FSPS@temple.edu for locations.

Student Testimonials

Rasheena Wilson

Rasheena Wilson, ’16

“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!”

Taylor Sauder, ’16

“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!”
