Continuing the legacy

The McTarnaghan Legacy Society, named for our founding president, recognizes his contributions as well as the generous visionaries who have chosen to remember FGCU in their estate plans. Their philanthropy has helped propel FGCU's meteoric growth and provided the foundation for academic excellence for future generations.

The McTarnaghan Legacy Society was created to honor our first president and individuals who have secured their legacies through meaningful planned gifts to the university. Society members share a strong bond of philanthropy that has enriched the institution and brought about extraordinary achievements in our short history.

Turning their individual passions into action, these donors share the vision of the university's founders and understand the transformative impact they can have on future generations.

Already have a legacy gift established? Please let us know.
