FGCU Foundation



Since opening its doors in 1997, Florida Gulf Coast University has experienced phenomenal growth. FGCU has developed a reputation for excellence as evidenced by the accolades from accrediting agencies and the success of our graduates. Extraordinary increases in enrollment have resulted.

Florida Gulf Coast University embraces the opportunity and its responsibility to respond to the interest of its ever-growing student body and to the needs of the region by expanding existing degree programs and establishing new valued academic experiences. The programs that FGCU develops not only address the projected needs of its students and region, but also build national recognition for FGCU.

Endowed program gifts ranging upwards from $10,000 advance existing programs and entities and offer legacies to donors. Endowment gifts ranging upwards from $100,000 can help establish new undergraduate, graduate and community program niches of excellence and distinction.
