Creating a Legacy at UWF
Joan Seifert graduated from the University of West Florida in 1969 and was one of the charter class members. She majored in history with a minor in political science and worked at the St. Petersburg Public Library for 37 years.
Joan was always involved on campus and wanted to continue her involvement into her alumna years. In addition to becoming the first president of the UWF Tampa Bay alumni club, she has given back to the University since 1982 by supporting initiatives like first generation students, undergraduate research in chemistry and Argo football.
Joan also made a planned gift in honor of her mother and father, which will create a scholarship endowment for students in Allied Health and Life Sciences, specifically providing opportunities for undergraduates to conduct research.
"As soon as I started making a little bit of money, I wanted to repay UWF," Joan says. "While campus sure looks different than when I was there, the central goals are still about the students—that's never changed."
Joan Seifert will be leaving a legacy for students at the University of West Florida for years to come. What legacy will you leave?
Every year, UWF alumni and friends use estate giving and planned giving for the University to strengthen their community and enhance the lives of young people. Giving to UWF allows you to make a lasting impact and take advantage of financial planning opportunities.
