Ways of Giving
Gifts of any size make a big impact on our Knights of today and tomorrow. Thank you for your support.
Give to the UCF Fund
Support UCF with straightforward, easy-to-give gifts through the UCF Fund. You will have real-time impact on a college or program of your choice, the university’s greatest need, or any one of numerous specific areas. By aggregating literally thousands of individual gifts every year, the UCF Fund also ensures that each gift has maximum benefit.
The UCF Fund supports UCF’s Day of Giving, Giving Tuesday, the Faculty & Staff campaign and many other critical short-term and long-range initiatives focused on increasing support to students, faculty and programs, university wide.
Create an Endowment
Give a gift that keeps on giving. An endowment gift is a donation that is kept rather than spent. Most other gifts are used quickly to meet the university’s pressing needs but an endowed gift is invested and then managed by the UCF Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization.
Take The UCF Challenge
Make a difference. University of Central Florida is making a bold, strategic move — launching THE UCF CHALLENGE: Philanthropy for Lasting Change. Through this limited-time program, the university will co-invest its own dollars with donors, increasing gift impact and allowing donors to see the impact of their philanthropy in months, not years.

Plan a Deferred Gift
Leave a legacy. Deferred or planned gifts allow you to support UCF and its students and can also benefit you and your family during your lifetime.
We have partnered with My-EstatePlans.com to assist you, your professional advisors and legal counsel in making the best informed decisions for your unique estate.
Give in Honor or Memory
Remember a loved one or mentor. Gifts of any size can pay tribute to a living or departed family member, friend or mentor when you support UCF and its students in his or her name. Our online giving pages allow you to enter any name you wish, and you may also choose to have a letter sent announcing your gift.
Have a Gift Matched
Double or triple your impact. Many employers match donations made by their employees. Does yours?
