Creating an endowment to recognize a favorite professor or remember a loved one is an ideal way to establish a legacy for someone in perpetuity.
The minimum gift required to endow a named fund at Florida State is $25,000. Many people choose to complete their pledge over a period of years, for example $5,000 a year for five years. Or the endowment can be funded with stock or appreciated securities.
Once $25,000 is received, the funds are invested by the FSU Foundation, and only interest generated from the principal of the endowment funds the program or department of your choice.
