Giving to the Education Foundation

The Krewe of Sant’ Yago Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting students of Latino descent and other students in financial need at the University of South Florida, University of Tampa, and Hillsborough Community College. One hundred percent of our proceeds go to benefiting students seeking higher-level education in the Tampa Bay Area. Please consider us for your next charitable contribution.

Giving Options

Choose a Specific School

Pick a specific school from one of our partners to direct your donation towards. Our current partners are the University of Tampa, University of South Florida, and Hillsborough Community College. We can’t guarantee your donation reaching your school of choice, except in the case of large donations covering entire scholarships, but we will make every effort to meet your request.

Give a One-Time Gift or Make Your Donation Recurring

We currently offer one-time gift donations through the form above. Recurring donation options are coming soon!

How to Give

Online or In-Person

Donating online is easy and secure, and makes getting your receipt a cinch! If you’d like to donate in-person, representatives are available at the Centro Asturiano every Tuesday evening around 6 p.m.

Through Your Estate

One of the most tax-effective ways you can donate is by willing the proceeds of life insurance policies, securities, or other financial instruments to the Education Foundation. Talk to your financial advisor or reach out to us to get connected with a specialist for more information.

About Your Donations and How They’re Used

Your donations are distributed annually to each school by way of making “commitments”. Each year, the KSY Education Foundation commits to providing a certain amount of money to each institution we support based on our current scholarship agreements with them, less a small amount of money each year to act as seed money for the future. More information about the exact cost of scholarships can be found on each school’s website.

Who are your scholarship partners?

We work primarily with the three participating Tampa Bay Area schools, Ed Morse Cadillac of Tampa, the Tampa Bay Rays, and the brotherhood of the Krewe of the Knights of Sant’ Yago to make our giving possible. We’re also grateful to countless KSY members, their companies, and their friends and family for their support.

How long has the KSY Education Foundation operated?

The Education Foundation was established in 1994 and has raised over $2 million for area scholarships.
