Ways to Give

Gift of Cash

A gift of cash makes an immediate impact on the Honors College’s departments and programs, and also provides you with an income tax charitable. Cash gifts are deductible up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income for the taxable year in which the gift is made, with any excess deductible over the next five years.Give Button

Gift Planning

A planned gift is made through a separate legal instrument that is often deferred until a future date, such as trusts, gift annuity, retirement plans, or life insurance. There are many ways that planned gifts can benefit you, your family, and the Honors College. We offer a number of planned giving programs as a way for alumni and friends to continue their loyal support of the college beyond their lifetimes, while realizing benefits for themselves today.
For assistance in making a planned gift, please contact us at 305-348-7514.


Endowed scholarships are made possible by the generosity of our friends and alumni. These scholarships help bring the best and brightest to Florida International University – and, just as important, help to keep them here. Scholarships are powerful in providing encouragement to our students, financially and emotionally. After graduating, many of our Honors College students go on to successful careers and are eager to “repay” their alma mater for the help they received.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

Gifts of any type may be made in honor of, or in memory of, someone special to you. This type of gift is a thoughtful and meaningful way to recognize the accomplishments or memory of a colleague, professor, friend, or relative.

The Honors College will notify the honoree, or a relative, regarding any gift made in this way.

For more information, please contact us at 305-348-7514.

Gifts in Kind

Gifts in kind are gifts of property that are voluntarily given by a donor to FIU’s Honors College. These gifts may include equipment, materials, supplies, artwork, and other personal property a donor might give to the Honors College to further the education and training of students, or benefit the administrative operations of the College.
