Ways to Give

Your gift is essential to the future success of our students and faculty. Below are a few ways you can make a gift to the College of Social Work. Donors can make gifts and pledge payments through online giving, check, credit card, automatic bank drafts or even payroll deduction for FSU faculty and staff. Many donors take advantage of the tax savings that come from giving appreciated stocks, shares of mutual funds or property.  A growing number of alumni and friends incorporate gifts into their financial and estate plans.

Careful estate planning yields special advantages for donors and their heirs while enabling them to support the important work of Florida State in a significant and lasting way. The FSU Foundation Office of Planned Giving can help donors meet their philanthropic and financial goals while they provide significant support to the University and its various academic programs. There are many ways contributors can ensure the future of the institution. Learn more about making a planned gift to FSU.

Professors

FSU’s College of Social Work is privileged to have an enthusiastic and talented faculty. Yet, the competition for attracting and retaining such an outstanding faculty is growing annually.

Funding a named professorship can help insure that our students get the best possible education from a faculty who have demonstrated excellence and are committed to remaining at the top of their field. The income from a named professorship helps CSW offer competitive salaries while providing funds to support faculty research and classroom activities. The minimum gift required to create an endowed professorship is $100,000, which can be paid over a period of five (5) years.

Professorships can be established in the donor’s name, the name of their business, or in honor of someone important to the donor. Donors also can specify how they would like the income from the professorship endowment to be used.

Scholarships

Every year, high school seniors receive the exciting news that they have been accepted into the incoming freshman class at FSU. But then reality hits home. “How am I going to pay for the cost of my education?” This question is asked repeatedly by incoming freshmen, undergraduates trying to stay in school, and graduate students looking to further their education.

Creating an endowed scholarship is a great way to provide a growing number of these deserving students with the financial resources necessary to reach their academic dreams, and begin pursuing exciting careers. The minimum gift required to create an endowed scholarship is $25,000, which can be paid over a period of five (5) years.

You can also help fund a student’s education without creating a new scholarship but by supporting one of our existing student scholarships. Please check out some of our current scholarships.
