Crisafi Challenge surpasses goal, raises $113,000 for student recruitment scholarships

Supporters of the University of Florida College of Pharmacy rallied together during the 2023 Crisafi Challenge to raise $113,350 for student recruitment scholarships. More than 130 gifts were received during the 10-day challenge that took place from Oct. 27 to Nov. 5. The contributions helped the college exceed its $50,000 fundraising goal and unlocked a $50,000 match gift from Bob Crisafi, Ph.D., ’56, to complete another successful year of the challenge.

Since its inception in 2015, the Crisafi Challenge has raised more than $1.1 million for student recruitment scholarships. The money raised during the 2023 Crisafi Challenge will support scholarships for entering Pharm.D. students in the fall of 2024.

The UF College of Pharmacy thanks everyone who contributed to this year’s challenge, including the 25 faculty and staff members who gave more than $8,700. The college generously matched all faculty and staff gifts to double the impact.
