Making a difference where it matters most 

Help us empower those serving critical roles in challenging times

Nurses, teachers, counselors, social workers. These and other professionals play vital parts in times like these, when the whole community’s wellbeing is in the balance. They help people heal. Ensure that children keep learning and families stay strong. Innovate solutions that serve the public good.

Give to FGCU So We Can Continue Making an Impact

At FGCU, we do our part by preparing these frontline heroes. With world-class faculty and hands-on learning, our students graduate ready to hit the trenches and conquer real-world challenges. Your support helps get them there.

The pandemic intensifies the need for scholarships

The need for scholarships always surpasses available funds. This year, that need is even greater.

The FGCU Foundation Board of Directors recognizes that the pandemic has created unique hardships for students. That gave Foundation Board Treasurer Charles Ketteman an idea.

“We were all experiencing personally what’s happened,” he said. “We realized the impact it was having on our students. Many have lost their jobs, or their parents have lost their jobs, and the students need that cash flow to come to FGCU.”

He suggested board members create a scholarship fund to which each member would donate “as much as we felt good about, then ask friends and acquaintances to match us,” he said. “I felt we could raise $50,000 or $60,000 and do it quickly so we could impact 50 students.”

The group raised $30,000 in the first 48 hours and quickly got to $55,000. They hope to reach $100,000 for the Foundation Board Pandemic Scholarship Fund. So far, they have awarded 55 scholarships.
