Through Student Philanthropy and Class Gifts, students are given the opportunity to give back to their favorite area of UCF. Students can make a philanthropic donation to scholarships, Knights Helping Knights Pantry, a service, college, department, athletics, or any area that's meaningful to them. Led by 4EVER KNIGHTS, this student-for-student initiative illustrates the importance of philanthropy at our institution.
Last year, UCF students supported 60 different areas of campus. Whether it was a scholarship, a sports team, or undergraduate research, students found a fund that held meaning for them. Check out the most popular funds below:
Each spring, UCF students join together to leave their legacy at our favorite university. What part of your experience at UCF has been worth more than $20.22? Knights give back to pay it forward to the next generation and express their gratitude to undergraduate research, CAPS, athletics, the Knights Helping Knights Pantry and more!
Students can visit our giving platform to make a gift during the campaign. Make a gift and spread the word to your friends. Graduating students can make a gift through the giving platform or when they order their cap and gown.
By just being a Knight, you’re eligible for all of our benefits and programs. Check out all of the exciting offerings!
Any gift makes an impact in the life of fellow Knight! Participation is our goal. A gift of $20 is just as important as a gift of $10,000. Your contribution matters!
We have suggested gift amounts for students:
$20.22 – This is the minimum gift amount if you are a graduating student and would like to receive your thank you cord to wear at graduation.
For those who are able to support, we are grateful that you are considering making a gift! Philanthropic support means the difference between a great institution and an excellent one. When you choose to mke a gift, it says you believe in the mission of UCF and its potential to change lives in our community. The number of donors that participate is also an indicator of success within university rankings in publications such as U.S. News and World Report.
All graduating Knights who make a Class Gift donation of $20.22 will receive a thank you cord to wear during their commencement ceremony. Student donors can pick up their green cord at Regalia Distribution.
We are always recruiting volunteers that help spearhead the events and programs that take place. You can volunteer in person or digitally! Email 4EVERKNIGHTS@ucfalumni.com to inquire about opportunities.
If you make your gift through the UCF Foundation websites, you will receive your tax receipt by mail within seven business days. If you make your gift through the cap and gown checkout process, you will receive your tax receipt after the semester concludes.
You can send your questions to 4EVERKNIGHTS@ucfalumni.com.
The 4EVER KNIGHTS Ambassadors are looking for exceptional student leaders to support student philanthropy efforts at UCF. The Class Gift Campaign focuses on educating students about private support at the university and encouraging students to support their favorite causes at our institution. This year’s UCF Class Gift Campaign will take place in February, National Student Philanthropy month.
