Annual Giving

The Importance of Annual Giving
The annual giving program is the philanthropic heartbeat of FAU, keeping the University vital and strong at all times. When you give to any of our annual campaigns, you ensure the greatest needs of FAU students, faculty, teams, and facilities are cared for. Your financial support through annual giving is the Foundation’s most important resource for meeting the institution’s everyday needs and strengthening our step on the climb to higher goals.

Exciting Ways to Show Your Support
Annual giving is often a family and community affair. Alumni, parents, community members, staff, and faculty all contribute to the ongoing pursuit of excellence at FAU. Wherever your Owl loyalties lie, there is an array of annual giving opportunities from which to choose. Show your spirit by supporting a college, program, or scholarship of your choice. New and traditional campaigns are offered each year, including faculty and staff Giving in Paradise, Senior Class Gifts providing student scholarships, and Paradise Club support for athletics.

Explore all the ways you can support your favorite programs at FAU. Visit giving campaigns and funds listed on our website or contact Alicia DeLuca, Director of Annual Giving, at 561.297.4897 or email for more information.
