Make a Gift
There are many ways to support the College.
Most donors make gifts and pledge payments by credit card, automatic bank drafts, or by check. Others take advantage of tax savings that come from giving appreciated stocks, shares of mutual funds or real estate. You may review the options below to find the method that is most convenient for you.
Fast and convenient, our secure form lets you direct your gift or pledge payment straight to the College of Social Sciences and Public Policy or program of your choice. You’ll receive an email confirmation of your gift and a receipt by mail for tax purposes.
If you are committed to supporting the college over time, setting up a recurring donation is a convenient way to have your contributions automatically charged to your credit card without any further action on your part. Many donors find this, or the electronic transfer method described below, to be the most convenient and effective way to provide the support they desire and manage and track charitable contributions.

The college gladly accepts gifts of stock, bonds and mutual funds. Donor stock transfers are made in one of three ways:
- Electronically (DTC)
- Physical Certificate—Donor’s Name
- Physical Certificate—FSU Foundation
Using real estate, such as your house, farm or commercial property, to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets and receive significant tax advantages.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contribution made by their employees. The impact of your gift to the college may be doubled or tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees, spouses, or members of the board of directors.
