About Us

In 1994, a small group of members of the Krewe of Sant’ Yago (KSY) produced a legacy when they created the KSY Education Foundation as a 501c3 organization. Our Tampa Bay community has benefited significantly from the over $3M in donations and over 691 scholarship recipients awarded among the three institutions we support; USF, UT, and HCC in the Tampa Bay area. These gifts have transformed the mostly Latin and the economically underprivileged students into an institution of international importance, a unique educational, social and esthetic resource for our Tampa Bay community and beyond.
