The Student Foundation looks to support projects and campaigns that have a positive impact on the Florida State community. In the long term, we hope to manage several endowments that we actively raise funds for and make decisions on where to allocate this money. What makes the Student Foundation unique is that it is entirely run by students. We choose which projects we want to support and we choose how funds raised will best support the mission of the projects.
All funds raised are invested as principal with the Florida State University Foundation. The interest accrued from these accounts are then dispersed by our Investment & Management team to our Allocations Committee. The Allocations Committee then determines what specific projects those funds will be spent on, a decision that is approved by our student-led Board of Trustees.
