The 2019-20 FGCU Foundation Board of Directors is composed of 27 board members, 20 chairpersons emeriti, 4 ex officio members and 7 foundation fellows
The FGCU Foundation is the channel for private gifts to FGCU through annual giving programs, planned gifts (outright gifts such as securities or real estate or deferred gifts through wills and trusts), and capital and other special-purpose campaigns. The Foundation's principal responsibilities are to raise awareness of the need for private support, to solicit gifts on behalf of FGCU and to exercise fiduciary management of those gifts.
The board acts to ensure that the mission and purpose of the Foundation are being fulfilled and that all applicable policies and procedures are being followed. The board may also vote into action initiatives proposed by its special committees.

History & Mission
In 1993, a group of dedicated community leaders formed the Florida Gulf Coast University Foundation, Inc., to support the educational mission of FGCU. The foundation encourages, solicits, receives and administers gifts for scientific, educational and charitable purposes, all for the advancement of the university.
