The Fromm Institute Appreciates Your Financial Support
As an independent non-profit at USF, the Fromm Institute provides its own funding, reimbursing the University of San Francisco for the use of all campus resources. It relies on the generous financial support of the community that it serves and has never accepted government funding.
Friends of the Fromm Institute
Financially supported by the Friends of the Fromm Institute, a private non-profit organization coded as a 509 (a)3, type iii organization by federal and state authorities, the Fromm Institute’s lifelong learning program has existed since 1976. Through the contributions of its Board of Directors, the donations of appreciative Fromm Institute students/faculty/staff, as well as gifts/grants from the Bay Area philanthropic community, the Friends of the Fromm Institute matches the membership fees paid by Fromm Institute members and in doing so enables a balanced, fiscally responsible budget.
