Your business benefits when you partner with us

While many colleges and universities enjoy the loyalty of their graduates, few can claim the level of loyalty, passion and spirit displayed by FGCU alumni, friends, fans and students. Tapping into the enthusiastic support of our 25,000 alumni is at the core of the Florida Gulf Coast University Alumni Association’s mission to inform, involve and serve.

It is this loyalty that has driven the Alumni Association’s success. And it is that very same trait that has bred success with our corporate partners as well. From savings on auto (GEICO) and health insurance (Mercer), Florida Gulf Coast University ranks among our partners’ top performing programs.

Now you, too, can share in this wealth. By tapping into the power of the Florida Gulf Coast University Alumni Association’s loyal alumni base through sponsorship's of our programs and events, you will receive exposure to thousands of eager, loyal and affluent consumers. With your input, we will create the perfect market fit between your company and the FGCU Alumni Association.
