KNIGHTS FOR LIFE
Your loyalty and contributions have enabled UCF Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving to fulfill its mission of providing programs, services and facilities that are comprehensive, inclusive and unsurpassed in quality. Knights of today and tomorrow benefit from your generosity — your financial support will provide specialized alumni programming for years to come.
We no longer offer paid membership options, but encourage you to continue to support the university and UCF Alumni in a way that has meaning for you. Gifts may be made to any area, but please consider supporting one of the featured UCF Alumni funds under Support What You Love.
Support What You Love
Featured UCF Alumni funds:
Alumni Scholarship Endowment - We believe no promising student should ever fail to graduate due to lack of resources. As higher education costs continue to rise, so does the need for scholarships. To date, more than 375 Knights have received scholarship support from UCF Alumni and, with your support, we can continue to provide assistance to many more.
UCF Alumni Operating Endowment - Endowment gifts are vital to UCF's pursuit of excellence. Because they are invested in perpetuity, these gifts represent a relatively stable source of funding. Over the long term, this type of support helps us continue to provide important programs and services for Knights of all graduating years.
UCF Alumni Excellence Fund - With more than 280,000 alumni working, achieving and advancing throughout the world, UCF Alumni must keep up with demand for expanded programs and services. Increased funding will support innovative programming and meet future needs.
Manny Rodriguez '75 Alumni Center Endowment - Manny Rodriguez '75 was the driving force behind construction of the UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center on the university's main campus. This endowment was created in his honor to support the alumni center so that past, present and future alumni will always have a home at UCF.
