The FAMU Foundation is a living organization which is vital to the progress of the University. The Foundation functions through its Board of Directors, institutional constituents and community donors. Due to the devout contributions of donors who consistently support quality programs that strengthen and broaden the university's academic appeal, Florida A&M University continues to be recognized as one of the leading institutions in Florida.
As a non-profit organization, Florida A&M University Foundation, Inc. is established with the specific mandate to serve as a custodian of contributions from the private sector, alumni, friends, and industry. The Foundation receives, invests and administers funds. In addition, the Foundation acts as a trustee and exercises in general the powers of a not-for-profit organization under the laws of Florida.
On behalf of the University, the FAMU Foundation, Inc. would like to express to our many supporters- alumni, faculty, staff, students, corporate partners, and friends- that we greatly appreciate your commitment to serve FAMU that has been shown through your consistent efforts to promote the academic programs at this institution.

Making a Gift
A gift to FAMU is used to enhance university programs that are not fully funded by the state legislature; it is also your opportunity to support the students of Florida A&M University by providing accessible dollars to meet their most important needs.
Remember, each gift from a donor maintains the University’s Alumni Participation Rate, and each gift from a new or renewed donor will drive this critical percentage even higher – regardless of the gift amount! The alumni participation rate is one of many factors that shapes public perceptions and is used by corporations and foundations as an indicator of the University’s commitment to excellence.
If you would like to make your donation or pledge with credit card or check, please use our convenient online donation page.
If you would prefer to send your gift by mail, please make check payable to FAMU Foundation, Inc.
