You might think that because we have a great building, $10,000,000 a year in research grants, and our salaries all paid for by the State of Florida, we would not need donations. Far from it! The spending of research dollars is very tightly controlled, and the State funding, which is steadily decreasing, only covers basics and also has restrictions. Every dollar donated to the physics unrestricted fund is greatly appreciated. These funds have direct impact on the daily lives of students, staff and faculty in the department and are used for outreach activities, receptions for guests, undergraduate scholarships and other awards. Please make an ONLINE DONATION.

Alternatively by checks made out the "Physics Unrestricted Account" and mailed to:
The Physics Department,
P.O. Box 118440
U. of Florida
Gainesville, FL 32611-8440

If you prefer to donate to a specific graduate student award please visit our AWARDS page.

Of course we would like to encourage those of you who are able to make larger gifts. An endowed chair is a fitting memorial to loved one. Our "New Physics Building" is no longer as new as it once was, and could easily be named for a generous benefactor. For these and other larger gifts do not hesitate to contact the chairman of the department ( or the University of Florida Foundation directly at (352)392-1691.
