FGCU Announces Vital Gift to Facilitate "FGCU Center" in Naples

Florida Gulf Coast University will announce a significant gift at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at the Heart Fax Building in Naples, 1010 Fifth Ave. S., that will make it possible for the University to open its first ever FGCU Center and make higher education accessible in the City of Naples.

The momentous donation, which has a value of over $500,000, includes physically renovating the building and providing office space for five years. The FGCU Center in Collier County is only being made possible as a result of this vital contribution.

FGCU plans to begin utilizing the space by offering for-credit and non-credit classes from three of its colleges – Business, Health Professions, and Professional Studies – as well as the “Renaissance Academy,” a program that FGCU offers as part of the University’s commitment to serve the Southwest Florida region for citizens who are 50 years old and over.
