Tuition only pays for 45 percent of the cost of a UWF education, and state support alone is not enough to deliver high-quality programs that meet the needs of our state and region. Private gifts, therefore, make a significant impact on the education of each student and are critical to the success of the university.
The Nautilus Society was formed in 2003 as a way to honor donors of $1,000 or more for their commitment to helping provide students with a high-quality education. Nautilus Society membership is based on fiscal year gifts (July 1 through June 30.) Qualifying gifts include both unrestricted and restricted gifts. Employer matching gifts can be included to qualify a constituent for membership to this society if received in the same fiscal year.
Comprised of prominent community leaders, outstanding alumni, successful business partners and generous foundations, Nautilus Society members are leaders in philanthropy whose consistent generosity helps empower UWF to pursue its mission to be the best regional comprehensive university in America.
