Giving Opportunities

Charting new courses. Beginning new traditions. Reaching new horizons.

And leading all the way. FAU has reached a pivotal point in our history, poised to be first among institutions of higher learning in offering the most advanced education, making breakthrough discoveries in research, and solving critical community challenges.

At this milestone moment in FAU’s growth and achievement, your giving matters more now than it ever has. 
Here’s why.

FAU Students

An unprecedented amount of FAU students are applying for financial support. Your contribution empowers students to reach their full potential when their only obstacle is a financial one.

FAU Faculty and Programs

As enrollment and educational opportunities increase, so does the need for well-equipped classrooms, labs, and offices administered by top-tier faculty and programs. We need your help to attract and keep the world-class faculty who are putting FAU on the global academic map.

FAU Facilities

FAU is constantly challenged to meet capacity for student housing, programs, and instructional equipment while managing increasing costs, state budget cuts, and rapidly changing technology. Your giving is why many of our most exciting endeavors now exist, including FAU Stadium, the Schmidt Family Complex for Academic and Athletic Excellence, and the Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center.

FAU Community

Your gift continues to grow long after graduations, football games, and ribbon cuttings. A large percentage of FAU students stay in the region, contributing to the financial, social, and cultural vitality of our community. In addition to learning opportunities, FAU offers a wide variety of programs across campuses and cities from Fort Lauderdale to Jupiter that enrich, engage, and support the lives of South Florida residents. These include the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, FAU Pine Jog Environmental Education Center, Theatre Lab drama company, the Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center, and the School of Architecture’s urban storefront, MetroLAB. 

Every gift you make to FAU is tax-deductible, a benefit of your philanthropy. Whether you choose to make an immediate cash gift or plan a long-term gift such as an annuity or trust, we assure your gift matters. Now and at every milestone to come.
