Creating a lasting legacy
At FGCU, we can help you make a transformative difference.
The story of Florida Gulf Coast University is, at its heart, a story of philanthropy. FGCU owes its existence and its continuing excellence to the generosity of individuals like you.
While charitable gifts are critically important to our institution, they also provide our benefactors with many rewards. The joy and satisfaction of giving to a cause they believe in, along with seeing how their gift leads to positive change and growth, are paramount benefits to our donors.
