You Believe in the Power of Higher Education

Earning a college degree transforms lives. It shapes the future — career opportunities, aspirations, community engagement and so much more. When you believe in students, they believe in themselves. Take the opportunity to impact students of all backgrounds and share in their excitement of promise and possibility as they embark on their journey at UCF and beyond.

You Want to Help Others Achieve a Degree

Affordability is key for many students when enrolling in and completing their college degree. Many students balance work and classes and some often support their families while navigating being the first in their family to attend college. Your support can make a difference in helping them stay focused on their studies and earn a degree. It can create positive change for generations.
