State Matching Gift Programs

The state of Florida offers a significant incentive for gifts to its state universities by matching your gift with additional state dollars.

Under provisions of Florida's Major Gifts Trust Fund, your gift is matched as follows:

$100,000 to $599,999 gifts matched 50 percent
$600,000 to $1,000,000 gifts matched 70 percent
$1,000,001 to $1,500,000 gifts matched 75 percent
$1,500,001 to $2,000,000 gifts matched 80 percent
$2,000,001 or more gifts matched 100 percent

Another state matching program is the Alec P. Courtelis University Facility Enhancement Challenge Grant Program. This program will match 100 percent of your gift for the construction of a School of Natural Resources and Environment facility on campus. Your commitment must equal half (1/2) the projected cost of the facility.


Corporate Matching Gift Programs

The company you work for may match your gift to SNRE. Check with your company's human resources department to obtain a matching gift form if available. Complete and sign the donor portion. Send the form along with your gift to initiate a match. The matching gift received from your initial gift is credited toward your gift record and counts toward recognition in UF donor gift clubs.

Please make checks payable to the University of Florida Foundation, and indicate that the donation is for the School of Natural Resources and Environment - Fund 012869.
