Giving to the Center for Global Engagement

Support the Center for Global Engagement

It is the Center for Global Engagement's mission to play a key role in facilitating the growth of international education on campus and in the community. It is also the Center for Global Engagement's top priority to ensure that international students, scholars and their dependents integrate successfully into campus and community life.

Ways to Give

There are many ways to support the Center for Global Engagement. Whether your gift qualifies as Annual Giving, Major Gift or Planned Giving, each type of gift makes an impact on current as well as future international students at Florida State.

Most donors make gifts and pledge payments by check, credit card, automatic bank drafts or even payroll deduction in the case of Florida State University faculty and staff. Others take advantage of tax savings that come from giving appreciated stocks, shares of mutual funds, or real estate. Donors can also contribute gifts-in-kind, such as works of art, antique furnishings or cultural artifacts and others. A growing number of alumni and friends incorporate gifts into their financial and estate planning.

The motivations of donors are as varied as the programs and colleges their gifts support. While unrestricted gifts allow the Center for Global Engagement the greatest flexibility to allocate funds where they are most needed, donors may designate their gifts to specific programs of the Center for Global Engagement.

The following are areas where philanthropy can make the greatest difference to international students, scholars and their dependents at FSU:

  • Scholarship Support
  • Speakers/Presentations
  • Cultural Awareness/Education Programs
  • Emergency Loan Funds
  • Graduate Assistantships
