USA: Sustainable Gift

In their support of USF through the years, Drs. Kiran C. and Pallavi Patel have contributed more than $25 million in a series of donations and state matching funds that have been used to build and enhance a wide range of programs devoted to sustainable global development and healthcare. Their giving has supported the Patel School of Global Sustainability, the Dr. Kiran Patel Center for Global Solutions Operating Fund, USF Health, the construction of the Patel Center for Global Solutions and the Dr. Kiran C. Patel Endowment Fund.

Their latest gift in the USF: Unstoppable Campaign, a $12 million endowment announced in October, will be used to further advance global sustainable research at USF and help create the Patel College of Global Sustainability, a process that involves the review and approval of several university panels. One of the goals is to provide the next generation the tools it needs to build a healthier, more sustainable future, while developing a global network of sustainability leaders.

“The Earth is God’s gift to humanity and we believe that the current generation must ensure that while meeting our present needs, we do not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs,” the Patels said in announcing the gift. “The world’s rapidly depleting resources and growing population require us to become more efficient and think of new ways to develop sustainable and renewable sources of clean water, energy, food and transportation.”
