Important Year-End Dates for Processing Charitable Gifts to FSU | 12/12/2023

This message has been approved by the Florida State University Foundation.

If you are responsible for processing or receiving gifts for your college or department, please note that the FSU Foundation will have abbreviated business hours during the winter break. To ensure your donors’ year-end gifts reach the Foundation in a timely manner and are processed according to their wishes, we ask that you adhere to the schedule outlined below.

The Florida State University Foundation office will close at 5 p.m. on December 15 and will remain closed through January 2, 2024. Regular office hours will resume on January 3, 2024.

Once you return from the holidays, please take a few moments to sort through your mail, identify charitable items and deliver those items, along with their respective postmarked envelopes, to the Foundation office by January 5. Please continue to send all postmarked envelopes for any gifts received in January. We also ask for your assistance in making faculty and staff who may receive gifts aware of the urgency of transmitting year-end gifts and donor instructions to the Foundation. Remote staff who cannot go into the office should find someone to check their mailbox for them.

Documents and donor instructions should be hand-delivered to the Foundation office at 325 W. College Ave. All faculty/staff contributions must follow the same instructions as other donors, including deadlines, postmarked envelopes, etc.
