Support our First-Generation Noles

Image of SocksRoughly 30% of the FSU undergraduate student body are the first in their families to go to college—a situation that comes with many challenges, many of which are centered around financial insecurities related to affording tuition, books, room and board, food and other living expenses. As an added bonus, the State of Florida matches all gifts to this fund in a two-to-one ratio, so for every dollar you give, the state will donate two—tripling your impact!

Thank you for supporting student success!

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my socks?
Your FSU socks should arrive in the mail within four to six weeks after you have made your gift.

Can I get more than one pair of socks?
Yes, but only if you make separate transactions each time. Only one pair of FSU socks will be mailed per transaction.

Can you ship internationally?
Unfortunately, we are unable to ship internationally at this time.

How will you know where to send my socks?
Please enter your current mailing address in the “donor information” portion of the donation form so we can send your socks to the right place.

Is my gift tax deductible?
Yes. You will receive a tax receipt via email after you make a gift. However, please note that there was an exchange of goods and services upon your donation. The fair market value ($5) of the items we are providing will reduce the tax credit of your gift, in accordance with federal tax regulations.

How do I verify or change my mailing address after my gift has been processed?
For any inquiries regarding your mailing address, please email, and a team member will respond and verify the information received.
