President's Club


In 1977 the Florida State University Foundation established the Presidents Club to recognize an exceptional group of donors who earned a place of distinction and honor through their outstanding response to the university’s need for private support. The College of Social Sciences and Public Policy gratefully honors the following donors whose generosity ensures the continued growth and excellence of our academic programs.

Please note that this listing of Presidents Club members is based solely upon cumulative lifetime giving to the college and does not reflect gifts to other academic units of the university.
