How Can You Help? Board Goal and Giving Expectation: 100% participation at a level that is meaningful and appropriate to each member with a minimum goal of Nautilus Society Member ($1000 or greater) during the fiscal year.
Why Give? Gifts to the University of West Florida are critical to the success of our students, our community and beyond. With ever-decreasing state support, private contributions help make up the funding gap and assist the university in delivering high quality programs for our students as they strive for and attain excellence in order to address the needs of our region, our state and beyond. Your gifts may also inspire others to give. When applying for grants or corporate gifts, the percentage of board participation is often a routine question in the application or gift process. Participation makes a difference both internally and externally.
Annual Giving UWF considers gifts to be annual if they are less than $10,000. Most annual gifts are made from the donor’s income. The Nautilus Society is UWF’s annual giving club that recognizes those who make an annual gift of $1000 or greater. Donors may pledge an annual gift amount for the fiscal year and make payments throughout the year (monthly, quarterly, etc.) The annual giving program is most often the catalyst that brings alumni and friends to the level of major giving and/or gift planning. Gifts that are typically made on an annual basis during the current fiscal year – July 1 to June 30.
Major Giving & Endowment Gifts UWF considers major gifts to be those that are greater than $10,000. Donors typically make a pledge commitment for a major gift and then make routine payments on the pledge over a designated period of time (usually 3 to 5 years). Donors may create named endowments for a gift of $20,000 or more (may be paid over a period of up to five years). Most major gifts are made from the donor’s assets. Board members and donors who have committed to a major gift and are routinely making payments on their pledges are considered to be current and participating donors during the current fiscal year.
How Philanthropy Drives the American Economy and Can Save Capitalism – Claire Gaudiani Most people think that Americans are generous because we are rich. The truth is that we are rich, in significant part, because we are generous. In annual basis, yearly, not-for-profit organizations spend approximately $700 billion in cash. Representing about 8 percent of the US economy. Generosity is not a luxury in this country. It is a cultural norm, a defining characteristic of our successful economy and our reasonably successful society. The Greater Good
