UWF Nautilus Society

The Nautilus Society was formed in 2003 and recognizes leaders in philanthropy at the University of West Florida. Private gifts make a significant impact on the educational experience 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.


Platinum - $7,500 or more per fiscal year

Gold - $5,000 to $7,499 per fiscal year

Silver - $2,500 to $4,999 per fiscal year

Bronze - $1,000 to $2,499 per fiscal year


Benefits include invitations to special university events throughout the year such as the annual donor recognition dinner. At this event, all Nautilus Society members and Lifetime Giving Society members are recognized in the dinner program.
