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


A message from the Senior Vice President, Howard LipmanIt 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.

To our donors and to those interested in learning more about FIU, I encourage you to explore this site and meet the people impacted by the power of philanthropy.

They are the heart of FIU – the students, faculty, staff, and community members who are daily enriched, inspired, and transformed by the generosity of your gifts.
