Ways to Give
There are many ways to give to Florida State University. Whether your gift qualifies as an Annual Gift, Endowed Gift or Planned Gift, each type of gift makes an impact on current as well as future students and faculty at Florida State.
Annual gifts offer a unique opportunity for alumni, parents and friends to ensure the continued success of the University. Through annual gifts, you may choose to designate your support for students, faculty or research in any of the University's colleges, schools, programs or units.
The basic plan underlying an endowed fund is simple. The principal of the fund is never spent. It is invested and the earnings are used to fulfill the purpose(s) for which the fund was created. Funds may be created for scholarships, fellowships, lectureships, research, professorships, library acquisitions, academic chairs, scientific and technical equipment, capital improvements or any other educational purpose of Florida State University.
Careful estate planning yields special advantages for donors and their heirs while enabling them to support the important work of Florida State in a significant and lasting way. The FSU Foundation Office of Planned Giving can help donors meet their philanthropic and financial goals while they provide significant support to the University and its various academic programs. There are many ways contributors can ensure the future of the institution. Learn more about how you can make a planned gift to FSU.
