Transforming Lives through Philanthropy

Give Now

Being a leading public metropolitan research university takes work — and the support of our alumni and friends. The State of Florida provides the funding that makes UCF a state university but it is philanthropy that makes UCF a great university. Join us and thousands of like-minded UCF donors who recognize the power and promise of higher education. You can make a difference.

Student Scholarships

Help remove financial barriers to achieving a degree. Student scholarships make it possible for students to continue their education when they may not otherwise be able to afford it. Scholarships also allow UCF to attract academic superstars who may have many college options available to them. 

Meet Cierra Turner, who has received scholarships thanks to the generosity of donors like you.

Knights Athletics

Celebrate the momentum that our athletics teams have built. With your continued support, the best is yet to come. Keep student athletes charging on — inside and outside of class.

Meet Kiera Brown, a student-athlete majoring in psychology.

Academic COlleges

Put your gift to work by supporting one of our 13 colleges. Ensure students have an engaging and exciting learning environment that drives their ambition and passion. 

Meet Daniela Garcia ’21, an interdisciplinary studies in education major, who talks about the impact of a UCF degree.

Student Experience

Promote student involvement on- and off-campus. With 650+ student clubs and organizations, you can support experiences from career-focused clubs to life-changing trips and service learning activities.

Meet Christina Adams, a student majoring in advertising/public relations, and learn about her UCF campus experience.
