FGCU Legacy Society

The Legacy Society recognizes the generous visionaries who have chosen to remember FGCU in their estate plans. Their philanthropy has helped propel FGCU's meteoric growth and provided the foundation for academic excellence for future generations.

The FGCU Legacy Society was created to honor individuals who have secured their legacies through meaningful planned gifts to the University. Members of the FGCU Legacy Society share a strong bond of philanthropy that has enriched the establishment and brought about extraordinary achievements in our short history.

Turning their individual passions into action, these donors understand the transformative impact they can have on future generations. Members of the Legacy Society share the vision of the University's founders to create a vibrant and impactful institution for Southwest Florida.

We invite you to join the committed philanthropists who enjoy the rewards of membership in the FGCU Legacy Society.


Recognition in the Legacy Society is automatic upon receipt of notice that a gift in any amount to Florida Gulf Coast University has been included in your estate plan or made through a life income arrangement or life insurance policy.

One of the ways to provide notice of a planned gift to the University is by completion of this form.
