Family Connection">FSU's Great Give 2014-Support the FSU Family Fund! from Andrea Failing on Vimeo.


FSU's Great Give 2014: April 17 at 9 A.M. EDT to April 18 at 9 P.M.

Help us raise $10,000 during this 36-hour campaign to support the Family Fund. The Family Fund provides resources needed to ensure student success inside and outside the classroom. Raising $10,000 would allow us to help reduce stress during exam week with Stress Buster Day, provide career preparation through mock interviews with employers, and keep students healthy with free flu shots during flu season.


Incentive awards are based on the number of gifts made during specific time periods. A unique gift is defined as one gift to one college, program or unit from one donor. Multiple gifts made by the same donor to the same college or program during a time frame incentive will only count as one gift. We encourage the colleges and units to promote their featured project and the incentives in their marketing efforts.

Help us earn more money for the Family Fund by donating duirng one of these times!
