A Legacy of Leadership
Since 1977, the FSU Foundation's Presidents Club has recognized the university's most generous donors—individuals, families, corporations and foundations—whose support, dedication and vision make positive things happen in our community, our state and beyond. Presidents Club members provide the backbone of critical private support that makes Florida State University a leader in teaching, research and public service programs.
Levels of Recognition
The Presidents Club honors donors in five different societies named for historically significant dates, benefactors and former presidents. Societies are based on cumulative giving of $10,000 or more to any college, program or department at Florida State through the FSU Foundation. Gifts that count toward Presidents Club recognition include gifts of cash, stock or property, corporate matching gifts, gifts-in-kind, pledges and irrevocable planned gifts (all other planned gifts are recognized in the James D. Westcott Legacy Society).
- 1851 Society: $5 million or more total lifetime giving
- Francis Eppes Society: $1 million-$4,999,999 total lifetime giving
- Edward Conradi Society: $500,000-$999,999 total lifetime giving
- Doak Campbell Society: $100,000-$499,999 total lifetime giving
- Robert Strozier Society: $10,000-$99,999 total lifetime giving
Presidents Club Benefits
Achieving the goals of the university requires a commitment from every segment of the FSU community. As vital members of this community, Presidents Club honorees will meet university leaders, be invited to campus and club activities and will form relationships with students, professors and other members of the Florida State University family. Honorees become a part of FSU's international network, serving as ambassadors for the university with potential students and supporters all over the world.
