New Look, Same Mission.

New Look, Same Mission. The Student Foundation Board of Trustees is proud to announce our new and improved website and logo! To celebrate our 5th anniversary as a foundation on campus we have decided to create an image that better represents our goals as an organization. Before moving forward one must take a look at their past, in our case we are looking back and giving back. Through the years, we have grown tremendously and have raised over $500,000 towards benefiting Florida State University. It all began in 2009, with the Protect Our Professors project. Our goal was to raise awareness about the budget cuts affecting our staff and faculty. In a matter of months, we exceeded our expectations and since then have taken on other projects, such as the Million Dollar and Click Yes campaign.

Welcome from the 2015 - 2016 Chair!

Over the past few years, Florida State University has gone through a transformative period, being designated as one of two preeminent institutions in the state of Florida and launching a large national campaign. We have witnessed that private support is a prominent factor in the academic success of the University and its students. The Student Foundation is excited for yet another remarkable year of philanthropy to support University-wide endeavors at the student level. We thank the students, faculty, and alumni of Florida State University who have provided our great institution with the foundations for growth, as we continue to create unparalleled opportunities for the Florida State community.
