Gifts to the UCF Foundation provide critical support for students, faculty, programs and facilities. Gifts from our alumni, friends, community and charitable organizations enrich academic programs, help purchase equipment and allow UCF to continue to offer special opportunities to students and faculty. We invite you to take a look at some of the giving opportunities available within the UCF Department of Chemistry.

Chemistry Forensic Science Fund

Forensic Sciences is an important program of the Chemistry Department. Our Forensic Science (Forensic Chemistry B.S. and Forensic Biochemistry B.S.) program meets all requirements for American Chemical Society approved degrees and the program is now FEPAC (Forensic Science Education Programs Accreditation Commission) accredited. This makes our Forensic Science B.S. program one of only a few in the country to have both those designations. Your gift to this fund will go to support student activities in pursuing the Forensic Chemistry and Forensic Biochemistry degrees.

Chemistry Family Memorial Fund

The Chemistry Department operates much like a family. Students, staff, and faculty all work together to teach, learn, and improve the chemical sciences. In this mission, we are very dependent upon each other, gain strength and insight from our relationships and in the process, we inspire each other to accomplish loftier goals. Alumni can often trace their career success back to a faculty member, staff member or fellow student who inspired or awakened their love of Chemistry. Your gift to this fund is a great way to honor a former member of the Department who holds a special place in your life.

To give to this fund, please click the Give Now button and type “Chemistry Family Memorial Fund” and please include the name of the Chemistry Family member you are honoring, if appropriate, in the comments section.
