Major Gifts

Contributions made to the University of $25,000 or more are considered Major Gifts. Endowments allow the University to accure interests on the principal fund that can be used towards scholarships, professorships, or other campaign priorities.

Planned Giving

We can help you and your financial advisor(s) develop a gift plan that meets your financial and philanthropic goals to support FSU. A properly planned gift may help you reduce or eliminate capital gains and gift and estate taxes. You may realize immediate tax savings as well. Real estate, tangible property, and securities can be turned into gifts with immediate tax benefits. If you are interested in exploring your options about planned giving, please call (910) 672-2348 or email

Corporate and Foundation Relations

As FSU continues to evolve into a national and global educational resource, greater emphasis will be placed on building relationships with key corporate and foundation contacts. If you are an alum or friend of FSU, we encourage you to contact us to discuss how we might partner with your organization through specific projects and other initiatives. For more information, please call (910) 672-2348 or email

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer's name below.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to Fayetteville State University may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
