FGCU Foundation

Supporting the advancement of FGCU

The FGCU Foundation is the channel for private gifts to FGCU through annual giving programs, planned gifts (outright gifts such as securities or real estate or deferred gifts through wills and trusts), and capital and other special-purpose campaigns.

The Foundation's principal responsibilities are to raise awareness of the need for private support, to solicit gifts on behalf of FGCU and exercise fiduciary management of those gifts.
