Areas of Giving
- Endowed Scholarships – With a minimum of $25,000 create a named endowed scholarship in the College of Medicine that will exist forever, thus honoring or memorializing the individual for whom the scholarship is named.
- Current Fund Scholarships – A gift of $100,000, which can be paid in four annual installments of $25,000 each, will provide a scholarship of $25,000 annually to a student for all four years of medical school.
Endowment gift commitments provide donors with significant opportunities to create a permanent legacy to honor or memorialize family members through naming recognition provided by FIU. Faculty positions, scholarships and other programs can be named in perpetuity in recognition of generous gifts to benefit the school and improve health care in our community.
Gifts other than cash can also benefit the college. It is an ideal opportunity for you or your company to be more generous and take advantage of a tax-deductible option.
Gifts made every year that are immediately available and are vital to the success of the college. You can also make a recurring annual gift.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs for charitable contributions made by their employees. Some even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Before making your gift, find out if your organization will match it, by checking our database, and double the impact of your gift.
Planned & Estate Giving
Legacy giving is essential to the successful development of the College. The foresight of graduates and friends to plan future gifts allows us to make decisions with the confidence that funding will be available for strategic priorities.
Faculty & Staff Giving - Ignite
Faculty and Staff contributions do more than provide funds for programs and scholarships. Your gift demonstrates that we are united in a common goal: making FIU the best it can be, now and in the future. Our Ignite giving rate is an impressive statement to alumni, corporations and foundations that FIU depends on for large gifts and grants.
