Believe: The UCF Faculty & Staff Campaign

Believing in What We Do

When you step up and show your support with a gift to the Believe Campaign, you set an example for others, demonstrating that we are united in a common goal: making UCF the best it can be, now and in the future.


Dear friends,

For more than 25 years, I have witnessed your dedication to the mission of UCF in your day-to-day service to our students, faculty, staff, and community. I have also been impressed by your generous support of the UCF Believe Campaign, our annual employee giving campaign, which has been a proud tradition for more than a decade.

Over the years, your contributions to Believe have steadily increased, and we have raised millions of dollars to expand student scholarships, strengthen programs, and enhance facilities. In fact, the impact of our Believe Campaign can be felt everywhere at UCF.

As we begin this year’s campaign, trust me when I say that donations of every amount matter. Your gift of $10 or $25 combined with other gifts of $10 and $25 makes an impact. And you can direct your dollars to whatever cause at the university you wish.

Just as important as the amount of money raised is the increase in the percentage of faculty and staff who donate to Believe. When we ask our alumni and friends to give to UCF, we can point with pride to the strong support of our university community. 

Last year, we set a participation record of more than 2,000 employees contributing to Believe. Since this year’s campaign will be my last as UCF President, I hope we can surpass that number.

If you have not given before, please join Martha and me in making a contribution this year. If you have given before, thank you, and please continue your support. As our university grows, so does the need for student scholarships, additional faculty members, additional facilities, and stronger programs. With your generosity we can reach our Believe goal of $1 million, which also counts toward our IGNITE Campaign goal of $500 million.

Thank you for all that you have done to make UCF one of the great metropolitan research universities in the nation, and all that you will do to IGNITE our university.

Cordially yours,

John C. Hitt, President
