Donor Recognition

A researcher discovers a more cost-effective treatment for chronic disease. A first-generation college student achieves his dream of a degree. A professor provides new insight on a pressing social dilemma that impacts our community. None of this is possible without you.

Florida State donors, like you, ensure that your successes will become the triumphs of our students when you make a gift to support our great University. Your contributions provide the financial resources that allow Florida State University to provide unparalleled educational opportunities for our students, including scholarships, access to respected faculty members, and opportunities to participate in internships and conduct ground-breaking research.

As an alumni, parent or friend of Florida State University, you know that receiving an exceptional education is crucial for creating success. A well-educated individual has the ability to change the world and enrich the communities in which they live.

You help us connect our students with their dreams. Thank you.
