We don’t want [access to fewer financial opportunities] to stand in the way of living out the full potential of what was the greatest four years of a learning experience for so many of us.
Opportunity lifts the recipient, but it also lifts the entire generation. I hope this [Notarantonio Endowed Nursing] scholarship provides the net for someone to take that leap into a brighter future.
Accessible green spaces make our communities more vibrant and livable. We are proud to work with UCF to support the UCF Arboretum and its programming.
Contributing to student scholarships means helping [students] succeed on the path to life-changing degrees — and investing in our community, where many of them will pursue their careers and raise their families.
When you look at the different ways you can use money to make a difference, I don’t know if there is a higher return on investment [than philanthropy] — you change someone’s life and you change the lives that person interacts with. That’s huge impact.
I give back so I can continue to open opportunities to generations of students — my passion is to invest in the future through education.
Establishing the D’Amato-Kubiet Family Endowed Scholarship makes my soul feel good. It is a joy and a privilege to give students the opportunity to become professional nurses.
We have made other charitable contributions over the years, but creating the [Fluman-Rettig Scholarship for First-Generation Students] is the most meaningful gift I have ever made in my life. UCF has given me more than I could ever give back.
We are evolving toward a better future, and with our donations, UCF can continue our shared mission to impact positive change and empowerment through knowledge and opportunity.
