Overview

Gifting Opportunities

The mission of Gator Boosters, Inc. is to raise funds for athletic scholarship endowment and construction and renovation of athletic facilities. Funding for these giving opportunities can be made in a number of ways. You might consider a one-time cash gift or you can spread payments over a five year period. There are many deferred methods to consider as well.

Gifts for facility projects must be either cash or cash equivalent (readily marketable assets or real estate). Endowment gifts may take the form of cash or any number of deferred gift methods, which include trusts, annuities, will provisions and life insurance.

Naming opportunities for scholarship endowment require minimum gifts of $50,000 (cash/cash equivalent) or $100,000 minimum deferred.

Also, some contributors may qualify for corporate matching gifts through their employers.

 

Endowment

When you support an athletic endowment, you give student-athletes something they might not have otherwise had, a shot at a top-quality University of Florida education. Funding an endowment is also one of the most significant ways to insure the future success of the university's athletic program. Minimum cost to name an endowment is $50,000 cash/cash equivalent or $100,000 deferred.

  • Recognition on the field at a home football or basketball game
