Ways to Give

The impact of your generosity is truly remarkable as it allows us to make game-changing moves, which in turn allow us to become an integral and dynamic contributor to the education, human services, and sport communities in the Northeast Florida region and beyond. Our goal is to provide the highest quality programs to provide an exceptionally talented work force. Explore the ways you can make an impact below.

Annual Giving

Each year, numerous alumni and friends show their support to the College of Education and Human Services by making a gift to the College. Gifts large and small come together to provide important funding for areas across our College, supporting scholarships for students in need, creating important learning experiences for preservice teachers, and providing innovative programming that helps purposeful students develop the skills and the confidence needed to transform our world.

Endowed Major Giving

An endowed gift allows donors to leave a lasting legacy at the College of Education and Human Services. Your gift will be used to establish a permanent fund to support a specific purpose, position, or program at the College. Examples of your investment include:

  • Endowing an Undergraduate Scholarship or a Graduate Fellowship. Privately endowed scholarships and fellowships are living legacies that help students and countless generations of future students. The awards are merit- and need-based.
  • Endowing a Professorship or Chair. Endowed professorships and chairs provide a lasting source of support for the COEHS, allowing the College to attract and retain the highest-quality faculty, ensuring students have access to the best minds, the most-creative researchers, and the most-engaged teachers in their fields.
  • Endowing a Program. Program endowments allow the College to develop stronger teaching programs, invest in new technologies, and facilitate internships, experiential learning, and other professional development opportunities for students.
