About the Foundation

The Florida Atlantic University Foundation, Inc. unleashes access to excellence for thousands of the University’s promising people and programs. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Foundation connects private philanthropy with opportunities to advance the University’s mission and strategic plan. Operating under the auspices of the Division of Institutional Advancement, the Foundation also serves as a fiduciary, caring for and distributing gifts in accordance with our donors’ wishes.

In March of 2020, the Foundation’s Investment Committee switched to an Outsourced Chief Investment Officer (OCIO). Despite ongoing market volatility across the country, we believe that by switching to an OCIO model, our consultants’ Fund Evaluation Group is empowered to make decisions, while making sure the Committee is well informed.
