Important Year-End Dates for Processing Charitable Gifts to FSU

If you are responsible for processing or receiving gifts for your college or department, please note that the FSU Foundation will have abbreviated business hours during the winter break. To ensure your donors’ year-end gifts reach the Foundation in a timely manner and are processed according to their wishes, we ask that you adhere to the schedule outlined below.

Please note that December 13, 2019, is the final day gift agreements will be hand-delivered to Westcott for signing by the provost and president. Routing to Westcott will resume on January 2. Should you have questions regarding the status of a gift agreement, contact Kim Harrison at (850) 644-0747.

Once you return from the holidays, please take a few moments to sort through your mail, identify charitable items and deliver those items, along with their respective postmarked envelopes, to the Foundation office by Monday, January 6, 2020. Please continue to send all postmarked envelopes for any gifts received in January. We also ask for your assistance in making faculty and other staff who may receive gifts aware of the urgency of transmitting year-end gifts and donor instructions to the Foundation.

Documents and donor instructions should be hand-delivered to the Foundation office at 325 W. College Ave. All contributions from faculty/staff must follow the same instructions as other donors, including deadlines, postmarked envelopes, etc.
