Why Support



Giving back impacts the lives of current and future Knights. Your generosity unlocks potential and inspires excellence. It expands access to higher education and helps make it affordable. You — our alumni, friends and corporate partners — play a vital role in making a difference. Together, we can transform 21st-century higher education and generate large-scale, positive effects on our students and our society. 

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.

You Want to Fill the Void of Funding Gaps

State budget cuts continue to widen funding gaps for universities. Since affordability is key for many students when enrolling in and completing their college degree, your support can be the difference in whether a student continues their education or abandons their studies.

You Want to Leave a Lasting Mark on Our Community

UCF helps propel the Central Florida community forward. As our region continues to grow and expand, you can help ensure that students receive the quality training and learning needed to shape the future of business in Central Florida and beyond.
