Ways to Give

Annual Giving

Annual gifts to CECS provide critical funding for scholarship support, senior design projects, equipment enhancements, professional development, and tools for recruiting the best, most diverse, and brightest students to UCF. The need has never been greater.

For more information on donating directly to CECS, please visit the UCF Foundation.


Planned Gift

A planned gift incorporates philanthropy with estate and financial planning to benefit both you and CECS. Planned gifts include life income gifts, retained life estate gifts, life insurance and retirement gifts, outright gifts of assets and bequests.

An endowment is a permanent fund that is invested to grow indefinitely and provide continually increasing funding. New endowments are the most pressing need for CECS. Endowment funds provide essential resources for faculty chairs, professorships, student scholarships, and specialty programs.

Honorary and Memorial Gifts

Gifts In-Kind

Gifts-in-kind are items of tangible personal property such as real estate, art, books, computer equipment or automobiles. Gifts are donated to CECS and recorded at fair market value.

Matching Gifts

Does your company participate in an employee gifts program? Some employers even match gifts from their retirees. You could double or even triple your gift to CECS by submitting a company matching form along with your gift.

Gift Payroll Deduction (UCF Faculty & Staff)

UCF employees have the opportunity to support UCF and CECS through payroll deduction. Just $10 per paycheck┬ábecomes $260 in a year. What’s more, your payroll deduction comes from pre-taxed dollars. Read “Getting to Know Mena LaGuardia-Prejido” to see why she gives to UCF.
