Our family of FIU donors has shaped the foundation of this great university. 

It is my honor to lead FIU’s fundraising efforts in collaboration with colleagues across the university who are committed to secure the resources we need to realize our vision.

In partnership with our donors, we are shaping the future of FIU. We are creating a financial foundation that will propel us to the next level of Worlds Ahead excellence.

We are currently in the midst of the Next Horizon campaign, which is an ambitious undertaking for our FIU. Through this $750 million campaign, we will see our university transformed by strengthening the pillars of student success and research excellence. During this phase, it is vital that all of our stakeholders – alumni, parents, friends, corporations, and foundations – learn about how we can participate in the campaign. This act of giving can be in many areas, such as increasing scholarships and student support; optimizing 21st-century teaching; advancing a vibrant, healthy Miami; accelerating research and discovery; and escalating discovery to enterprise.

As you think of how to begin participating, I encourage you to explore the Next Horizon website. Learn about the people who are already doing so and the lives they are changing. Schedule a visit to campus, and see this change in action.

I thank you for your support in helping us reach the Next Horizon.
