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 Mathematics.


Students Studying

Mathematics General Fund

Giving to the Mathematics General Fund is a great way to target your gift to the department. There are a lot of needs in supporting our seminars and colloquium talks by inviting and hosting visitors from outside UCF. Materials are also needed for the Mathematics Assistance and Learning Lab (the MALL) and the Mathematics Success Center to better serve our students. Your gift to the Mathematics General Fund allows the department to address its most pressing needs.

Student raising hand in class

Math Circle Fund

The faculty in the Math Department believe that making the study of mathematics exciting and fun among our students is an obligation to our Central Florida community. Faculty and student volunteers (graduate and undergraduate) devote a few of their Saturdays each spring semester to organize some interesting activities for students. With the department’s help and with the encouragement and support from the national Math Circle Association, UCF started the UCF Math Circle a few years ago as a free service to local students. Your donation will help us to provide the materials, snacks and water for student participants.

Professor Lee Armstrong

Lee Armstrong Best GTA Teaching Award Fund

The Math Department gives out an annual award to the best Graduate Teaching Assistant in the department. This award was initially funded by our former colleague, the late Professor Lee Armstrong, on an annual basis. Indeed, he handed in a check every year. Professor Armstrong passed away in 2019 and the department wants to keep this named award in memory of Professor Lee Armstrong. Your donation will help us to promote the excellence in teaching among our graduate teaching assistants, an area Professor Lee Armstrong was very passionate about.
