Support the CPC Mission

If you are passionate about making a meaningful impact on the lives of our growing aging population, as well as the faculty, staff, and students collaborating with us on our mission, we invite you to make a generous contribution to the Claude Pepper Center. By supporting this center through philanthropic giving, you play a vital role in empowering our dedicated researchers, staff, and students to continue their crucial work.

Contributions from alumni and friends of the Claude Pepper Center enable us to provide valuable opportunities for students to engage in academic growth and professional development. With your support, we can facilitate student and researcher travel to conferences, allowing them to showcase their research and establish valuable connections within their fields. Additionally, your contributions help us bring renowned speakers to our institution, support students so they can obtain critical training on their research skills, and provide funding so students can develop projects that support older adults living in the state of Florida.

Donating is simple and secure. You can make your contribution online using a credit card, debit card or Paypal through the secure site set up by the FSU Foundation. When selecting the designation for your gift, please be sure to choose “Pepper Center for Public Policy and Gerontology (F04822)”. Alternatively, if you prefer to send a check, kindly complete the form provided by the FSU Foundation, print it out, and mail it to the specified address.

For further information on additional opportunities to support the Claude Pepper Center, please contact Katherine Cline Ashler, Senior Director of Development. She can be reached at or by phone at 850-294-3343. Your partnership in our mission is greatly appreciated.
