Invest from the Nest: Faculty and Staff Giving Campaign

“Invest from the Nest” is Florida Atlantic’s faculty and staff giving campaign, focused on fundraising for students, research and programs. The dedication of faculty and staff is what continues to propel academic, research and service excellence. United by a common goal, there has never been a better time to ignite a shared spirit of giving among our colleagues. From a philanthropic tradition that began 50 years ago with the University’s first faculty and staff giving campaign, 2024 ushers in a new era of faculty and staff giving with the “Invest from the Nest” campaign.

By electing a payroll deduction of any amount, your gift to an established fund of your choice will accrue over time to make an even bigger impact. The goal of “Invest from the Nest” is to inspire 100% participation. Each donation forges a stronger connection to Florida Atlantic and supports a community of proud owls. All faculty and staff who donate will be recognized with a special lapel pin to signify their philanthropy and impactful contribution.

Florida Atlantic will host a series of engaging activities for faculty and staff from March 11-15 on all campuses to kick-start the “Invest from the Nest” campaign.
