Membership Transition

Why are these changes being made?

FIU’s move is part of a national trend. Over the last 10 years, the following public research universities have moved from a membership model to a donor centric, giving model: University of Connecticut, Ohio State University, University of Illinois, University of Colorado, Rutgers University, University of Central Florida, University of Georgia, San Diego State University, Cleveland State University, Florida Gulf Coast University, and University at Buffalo.

Our former membership dues model did not provide the amount of financial support necessary to maintain this model. Additionally, eliminating the dues based model will not negatively affect revenue since other revenue streams (institutional/advancement budget, affinity programs, merchandising, advertising, and fundraising) will account for any income reduction that may occur and still support our alumni programs.

The FIU Alumni Association is making strategic changes to evolve our alumni programming and become more aligned with the priorities of the university. We are confident that this move will help us build and strengthen affinity amongst alumni and will bring about a broader base of engaged alumni, allowing FIU graduates to connect with the university in new and numerous ways.

When will the changes take effect?

These changes have already taken effect.

Is there a fee or cost to join the Alumni Association?

We are no longer operating under a membership fees structure. All of our 215,000 alumni are now privy to all the perks and services we offer as an Alumni Association.

I am an FIU Alumni Association annual or lifetime member. What do I need to know?

Your FIU Alumni Association annual or lifetime membership will now be counted as a charitable gift, which is tax deductible, and you will be considered a donor to the university and not a member. As a donor, you will be privy to all the perks and services we offer as an Alumni Association. You will also become a part of FIU Forever Panthers once you have reached the $600 total donation threshold.

How do I become an FIU Forever Panthers donor?

You can make a $600 donation to the FIU Alumni Association to become part of FIU Forever Panthers. To make your gift, please visit https://give.fiu.edu/give-now/alumni-association/ or call 305-348-3334 or 1-800-FIU-ALUM.

How can I make a gift to the FIU Alumni Association?

To make a gift, please visit https://give.fiu.edu/give-now/alumni-association/ or call 305-348-3334 or 1-800-FIU-ALUM.

If I’m not an FIU alumnus, is it still possible to become an FIU Forever Panthers donor?

Yes, please call 305-348-3334 or 1-800-FIU-ALUM, or email alumni@fiu.edu for more information.

Who should I contact with questions about these changes?

Please call 305-348-3334 or 1-800-FIU-ALUM, or email alumni@fiu.edu for more information.
